Furthermore, they are not afraid to speak the truth, laced with an attractive attitude. It is not unusual for a mom to become their child’s best friend. This is a natural outcome to their acceptance and relational relentlessness. Because their emotional IQ is high, they are able to almost instantly discern and remedy heartfelt needs. Indeed, they are compulsive givers with a propensity to out-serve everyone.
Lord, this outlandish outpouring of love concerns me. It doesn’t bother me that they love so generously. What troubles me is their need for unconditional love. Are moms being mothered to the extent that their own needs are being met? An un-mothered mom is a good candidate for a miserable mom. If they are not receiving what they need in emotional and spiritual support, they may whither under the pressure. Like a flower in an arid climate, they need the moist love, nurture, and security of their Savior, Jesus.
Lastly, they value being valued, and desire acceptance. They are secure living in security, and long to be loved. Lord, lead me to model this for my mom and the mother of our children. Show me how to shower on them what they have rained upon relationships season after season in unselfish service. I want to give back to them in the same way they have given to me and our children. I long for the Lord to bless moms!
“Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her…” (Proverbs 31:28).
How can I love on my mom or another mom who needs encouraging?
