“When Jesus saw his mother there, and the disciple whom he loved standing nearby, he said to his mother, ‘Dear woman, here is your son,’ and to the disciple, ‘Here is your mother.’ From that time on, this disciple took her into his home” John 19:26-27.
Mom. Even the coarsest and roughest among us will defend her, protect her, provide for her, love her, and never hear a word against her. School kids know the easiest way to bully a kid is to speak about her mother. Mothers hold a special place in our hearts. They are our anchors. They are what home means to all of us. No one on this earth, outside of God, loves us more—with a love that is fierce and unconditional. Perhaps that’s why God gave us mothers—so we could understand His love for us. After all, if “hell has no fury like a woman scorned,” how much more so if one gets between a mother bear and her cubs! With the full love of God that Jesus had while fully man, He, dying on the cross for His mother and all of us, provided for His mother in the best way that He could—by making her the mother over and into the care of the “disciple whom he loved.”
How does a mother’s love help us understand God’s?
