How to Love Your Mother

Read | 1 Corinthians 13:4-7

As children, we showed Mom love with hugs, drawings, and cuddles. But now that we’re adults, some of us are uncertain how to demonstrate love to her. At times this is because the relationship is challenging: Meeting her needs as she ages can be emotionally draining and time-consuming. Or perhaps resentment over experiences of conflict, mistreatment, or rejection in childhood have created a barrier.

Yet despite past histories and present challenges, we cannot ignore the Bible’s command to honor our parents (Eph. 6:2). Let me suggest four ways to respect and love your mother regardless of what has happened in your relationship.

1. Love her patiently. There are no perfect mothers. We all make mistakes and carry emotional baggage that shapes our actions and responses. Just consider how patiently God deals with you, and do the same with your mom.

2. Treat her kindly. Rudeness only reveals our own imperfections and does nothing to benefit Mom or improve your relationship with her.

3. Act unselfishly. We are called to follow Christ’s example of selfless service instead of seeking convenience or our own comfort.

4. Remember that love requires forgiveness. Holding a grudge not only poisons us; it also prevents a good relationship from developing.

I truly hope you all have a very blessed and awesome Mother’s Day

About Beyond The Stones

Good Morning,

I have just created my new blog “Beyond The Stones” so I thought I would elaborate a bit on the title of this blog. I seem to be a habitual kidney stone maker, not by choice but because that’s just what my body wants to do. Many people including myself compare kidney stones to child birth, with that being said, I think I have about 30 or so fictitious children. Thankfully in real life I only have a few….children that is. I’ve been through many many tests to find the cause of this problem, but no one can seem to come up with anything other than it’s in my gene’s….I’d say it’s time for a new pair. I will post periodically about this subject in the hopes that maybe someone else goes through the same thing and we can compare notes. This subject is NOT going to be the main focus of this blog.

I have many things in my life that I am passionate about and enjoy, and I try very hard not to let this condition dictate to me what I’m going to do. Although, having said that, sometimes it’s unavoidable, I never know when one is going to strike and how that particular one is going to make me feel. I almost always have to have surgery to remove them which usually changes my life for about a week afterwards.

This Blog will have many subjects, some of which will be, but not limited to….Fun, Facts, Food, Family and many many more, just depends on what I’m passionate about when I wake up that day.

So, Welcome aboard and I hope you enjoy your stay and find my blog interesting and fun. I am open to suggestions and subjects, so if you have something you’d like to read about that I’m not covering, just let me know.

I hope you all have a blessed day.

JT
