True Love of mother
Love of a mother
When we see a beautiful child in the lap of the mother, we are happy. We love small children. Their laughing face make us feel good and we love them. When you see a beautifully dressed clean and happy child, have you ever thought of the person who did all the efforts to make that child beautiful and presentable.
We know how much a mother love her child. The child is born from within the mother. So the child is her own blood and flesh. She bore her child 9-10 moths in her womb. Then she gave birth painfully. When she see the face of her child, she forget all her pain and trouble. Most of the mothers are happy. Because she is fruitful and complete. She became a mother. She always try to give her best to that child.
A mother is there always to take care of the child. She change the diaper. When they are dirty she cleans them. She wash them. Take care of them. The relationship of a mother and a child carries deep emotions and feelings within it and it is always nurtured by love, affection and care. That is why a mother never refuse to take care of her child.
When the child hurts himself, the mother feels the pain more than the child has. When the child is happy, mother is also happy. When the child become sick, mother feels the sickness in her life. A mother is attached to the child more than anything else in this world.
Many of you may be having a child or two. You know how much you love
your child. You try to give your best to them. Best education. Best
food. Best dress. Best living condition. Because you love them. Whatever you
have in this world, you give it to them. You want to teach them good
manners. You want them to be educated and doing good in their life.
You want them to do business or high profile job. You want to make
them highly successful.
For that, to make them successful, you give them instructions. You tell them to study. You know that if someone want success in their life, they need to study well. You send them to the best school and ask them to do the study. You ask them to learn the lessons.
That is when conflicts starts between a mother and her child. Child is not ready to take the pain to become successful. A child is happy to go in the way he or she pleases. Play every time. Watch television. Play video games. And eat lot of good food. Drink sweetened drinks etc. become his/her passion and S/he loves it. But a mother knows what is good for the child. She try to guide him to do good and achieve success in his life. There is no inferior motive in a mother's actions.
But the child often misunderstand the mother. Child would say mother is controlling him/her and not allowing him to go free. You know it. No mother never wish her child go astray. A mother always want her child to do good in his life. That is why she controls her children. But who cares! Conflicts between mothers and children are growing now a days.
A mother has limitations. She can guide her child. Sent them to the best school. Give them good food and living conditions. But studying and obeying is the duty of the child. A child should understand his/her mother. When he/she understand his/her parents and do good, they would become successful. If they disobey and refuse to do excel in their studies, they are creating their own future. If they are not willing to take the pain, they would become unsuccessful in their life. Who understand this?
When we look at our own life, we did the same thing in our life. When our parents provided us everything what we needed, how we utilized that facilities? Many of us refused to study. We find joy in playing and spending time on things which give us momentary pleasures. Many times, I think, if I had put little more efforts in my studies, I could have do better in my life. I could have reach more heights and achieve more things in my life. But it is too late.
A mothers love is greatest love in this world. Now let us look at
Isaiah 49:15 "Can a mother forget the baby at her breast and have no
compassion on the child she has borne? Though she may forget, I will
not forget you!"
You may never seen a God. You may never experienced a God. You may never thought about a God. It is very difficult for you to understand an unseen God. God is everywhere. God is living within your mother. God is living within your neighbor. Bible says you are the temple of the God. And the God lives within you. He loves you. That love surpasses your mothers love. Even if your mother forget you, God will not forget you. That is the promise. He feels your pain just like a mother feels the pain of her child. Your pain is God's pain. Your happiness is God's happiness. Your illness is God's illness. God is happy when you are happy. God want you to do good in your life. God want you to be happy. God want you to live according to his will. That is why God correcting you. Sometimes he punishes you to turn to the right path as a mother does. It is painful, but beneficial if you learn from it, as we learn from our parents.
Can you feel him in your life. Could you understand his work in your life. He is working with you every moment of your life to guide you in the right path. Listen to God. He is speaking inside your heart. To know more about his will, you need to read the word of God -Bible. What a wonderful love he has for you. He would never fail you, if you obey him.
Have you ever said thank you to your mother for the work she did for you. Have you ever felt grateful to your mother in your heart for what she did for you. Often we think about the things she forget to do for us. We accuse her. We use harsh words that hurts her. Was it for she does all the good things for you? Saying a kind word will rejuvenate her spirit. We need to have a kind heart. We need to have a grateful heart.
God is also looking for a grateful heart. For all the blessings he poured out in our life. Can you say thank you to that unseen God for his blessings. For placing us in this beautiful world. Jesus Said: "Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light."
