"As a mother comforts her child, so will I comfort you; and you will be comforted over Jerusalem."NIV
"As one whom his mother comforteth, so will I comfort you; and ye shall be comforted in Jerusalem."KJV
What an honor it is to mothers everywhere that God would promise His people the same comfort that a mother would give her child. God built into mothers a special love that creates a bond between her and her child that nothing can come between. There is no hesitation on a mother's part to get to her child when he is in trouble so that she can get him to safety, take care of his needs, and comfort him. Every mother knows this strong giving love. All children know who they can go to in times of joy and sorrow. Our Lord stands ready at all times to show that same comfort to us, just like a mother does.
Heavenly Father, how we thank You for mothers love that You planted within them. We thank You for mothers who sacrifice and give, not thinking of themselves. We praise You for patterning a mother's love after Your own. Help us to always honor our mothers and give them the honor they deserve. We pray in Jesus' name, Amen.
