Bible Verses about Mothers

Bible verses about mothers are located throughout the bible. Whether the bible verse speaks specifically about mothers or reference a specific mother, it is worthy of reading and applying it to your life. Reading these scriptures about mothers will encourage young mothers, and enlighten children about how important their mother’s are. Quite often we don’t reflect on the importance of our mothers and grandmothers until that one Sunday that is set aside in May, Mother’s Day. These scriptures can be used as Mother’s Day bible verses. Trying using these verses when you are making or signing your mother’s card. She will be so very impressed.

I like reading various bible stories about mothers because it reveals the character of the woman and her children are a reflection of her. It should be every mother’s goal to be the best mother she can possibly be. Whether she has one child or fifteen children, the Lord will give you strength to fulfill your role. It is our prayer that these scriptures will either encourage you or someone you are trying to encourage in the role of motherhood.
