MOTHER’S DAY SPECIAL
On this Mothers’ day
“Honor thy father and thy mother that thy days be long upon the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee.” (fourth Commandment)
It Looks to me there are three parties involved in this Commandment. God created man and saw that he was lonely and made a most beautiful wife for him called Eve. Blessed them and said, “replenish the Earth after your kind.” To my mind Adam and Eve and the children were three parties that made a first family. Man and woman had a great love for each other, an everlasting bond of love and caring and sharing responsibility. The third party is their off springs. This is a procreative aspect of life.
Therefore, God had plan for all species to multiply and fill the Earth. It is wrong theology to believe that sex is an abominations as many religions believe. Sex is honored and sanctified natural aspect, blessed by God. Sinfulness and perversion of Sex evolves with its abuse. For example, God created male and female for the species to grow. He did made Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve.
Motherhood therefore, is the central theme of a family unit. Giving full credit to motherly role, the female plays a far greater role and must be loved and honored. This is how St. Paul admonishes my a graceful way saying-
Wives, submit yourselves to your own husbands, as it is fit in the Lord. Husbands, love your wives, and be not bitter against them. Children, obey your parents; for this is well pleasing unto the Lord. Fathers provoke not your Children to anger, lest they be discouraged. (Colossians 3: 18-21)
As for as the love of a mother goes, Jesus on the cross says to one of His disciple John, “Take your mother home” ( Mary His own mother)
The Biblical history is strewn with the lives of strong and outstanding women who shaped and changed the whole history of Judaic heritage. Mary was the mother of Christ. Elishba was the mother of Great prophet John the Baptist, killed by King Harold. Miriam the prophetess was sister of Moses. Deborah was not only the prophetess, but the commander of the Jew army. So were the countless prayerful women sold to the Roman empire, who turned heathen and idolatrous kingdom into Christianity.
The strength of motherhood is the foundation stone of a family unit and of a nation as a whole. The biggest demonic attack of devil is at family units and family values today. The recent relativism and alternativism has ruined the whole fibre of society and its social order. Gay and lesbianism, marriage alternatives, single parenthood and abortions are acceptable norms of society tloday. adulterous ways and growth of divorces looks to me as the dishonor to motherhood.
The Nations and races who fail to honor their progeny through motherhood are bound to fail mankind and will fall prey to recidivism. Mothers and mothers to be I honor and pay my homage to you all. Happy Mothers’ day!
