1 King 3:26-27
Then spake the woman whose the living child was unto the King, for her bowels yerned 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. Then the King answered and said, give her the living child, and in no wise slay it; she is the other thereof.
Today's lesson depicts the true love and affection of a mother in that the two women depicted in this story clearly shows who the real mother was. In order to save the child's life, the real mother of the child was willing for the other woman to have custody of the baby. A true mother's love!
This also speaks to the many sacrifices mothers make for their children daily. No sacrifice or price is too great for a mother to pay for her child.
That said, today being Mother's Day, these questions come to mind, How have you shown your mother love? Have you hugged your mother and told her you love her? Give your mother her roses while she yet lives because you only get one mother. A mother's love is a priceless commodity and she is a precious jewel. She emulates the love of God, which is unconditional. She gives and asks for nothing in return.
Mothers, we love you, we cherish you and adore you, because you love with the love of God.
