One of the early morning news programs was explaining all of the hormones that are released when a woman gives birth to a child to bond her to that child. Then as the mother nurses her baby, more hormones are released that bond the two together.
Fathers don't have these hormones. Grandparents don't have these hormones. Caregivers don't have these hormones. Only mothers towards their children. Mothers need to be with their children just as much as children need to be with their mothers. God created us that way and it is His way. It is unnatural for mothers not to raise their children.
No one can take the place of mothers no matter what feminists or our society tells you. You are replaceable in any job you may have but you are irreplaceable in the life of your children. Don't think of this as a negative as Satan would love you to think but think of it as a positive, something marvelous that only our loving Creator could create.
You, mothers, are the most important person in your child's life. As they bond to you and you bond to them, they will be able to bond to others much more easily as they walk through this life. Your worth is immeasurable in the life of your child. You are creating the next generation of godly offspring.
Never think your life is not important. Yes, it can get monotonous and difficult at times but you are storing your treasures in heaven, your children's lives. Nothing is more important than that. So this Mother's Day, remember your value and worth in your children's lives and be thankful for God's created order.
Happy Mothers Day!
Strength and dignity are her clothing, and she laughs at the time to come. She opens her mouth with wisdom, and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue. She looks well to the ways of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness. Her children rise up and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her: “Many women have done excellently, but you surpass them all.”
