A Mother’s Love

Summary: Mothers are inseparable from their children. Without children, a mother is not a mother. A mother’s love is a selfless love where a mother is prepared to sacrifice everything for their children. At the same time a mother’s love includes discipline and should not just accept anything that a son or daughter does as OK. See below for Biblical advice and scriptures concerning a mother’s love.

King Solomon and the Mother With Selfless Love

Solomon's Wisdom in Deciding the Mother of the Child

Mothers, Both New and Old, Are Inseparable From Their Children.

Eve was the first mother. Her name means “life, living, life-spring”. She is the mother of all of mankind. Without children, a mother is not a mother. Genesis 3:20 tells us that Eve was the mother of all living.

Genesis 3:20, “And Adam called his wife’s name Eve; because she was the mother of all living.”

A Mother’s Love is a Selfless Love.

A mother’s love can never be separated from her children. King Solomon knew this and that a true mother would never agree to her child being harmed. 1st Kings 3:26 tells of King Solomon’s justice and how a mother was prepared to sacrifice everything for her son.

1st Kings 3:26, “Then spake the woman whose the living child was unto the king, for her bowels yearned upon her son, and she said, O my lord, give her the living child, and in no wise slay it. But the other said, Let it be neither mine nor thine, but divide it.”


A Mother’s Love is Sometimes a Hard Love.

It is natural for a mother’s love to be forgiving and not judging. At the same time a mother’s love should not just accept anything that a son or daughter does as OK. Proverbs 29:15 advises mothers to instill wisdom in their children by punishment if necessary.

Proverbs 29:15, “The rod and reproof give wisdom: but a child left to himself bringeth his mother to shame.”
