You are Invited

Near the cross of Jesus stood His mother, His mother’s sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary Magdalene. 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, that time on, this disciple took her into his home. John 19:25-27

Today you are invited to consider Jesus’ concern and love for His mother even as He hung on the cross, as she stood, watching Him. Think of your own mother. How would you describe your relationship with her? What part does she play in your life? What, if anything, has happened between you that you need to forgive her for? Or for which you need to ask for forgiveness? If she were to walk into the room now, how would you feel? Speak to Jesus about your mother – whether she is still living or is no longer here. What will you say to Him? Where do you need His help in this relationship? Where do you want to praise Him? Consider writing your mother a note today – just because.

May God bless you, may He bring about any healing and reconciliation that is needed, and may He give you joy in your relationship with your mother today.
