As we celebrate our mums this Mother’s Day, it’s interesting to reflect on the mothering and compassionate nature of our Creator God.
I love the imagery of the protective mother hen from
Matthew 23:37: “…How often I wanted to gather your
children together, the way a hen gathers her chicks under her wings…”
This idea is further explored in Psalm 91: “He will cover you with his feathers. He will shelter you with his wings. His faithful promises are your armour and protection.”
Life will throw you its curve balls and you’re sure to experience hard times… but there is comfort in knowing that God, like our earthly mums, will always be there smiling with arms outstretched – our refuge, comfort and our greatest supporter.
