May 8

“When Jesus saw his mother there, and the disciple whom he loved standing nearby, he said to her, “Woman, here is your son,” and to the disciple, “Here is your mother.” From that time on, this disciple took her into his home.” John 19:26-27 (NIV)

These words show us the love and concern Jesus had for His mother. Even while suffering great physical and spiritual agony He thought of her. He committed her to the loving care of His disciple John. Jesus was facing separation from His Father as he was bearing the sins of the world, suffering terribly, and yet He thought of His mother. He is still concerned about the mothers in this world and even now is praying for faithful mothers. Let’s honor our mothers as Jesus did.
