9 Bible Verses for Your Mom on Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day is coming up soon, which means it’s time to celebrate our moms. From the moment we’re born, our moms care for us, support us, and nurture our hearts. Most of all, moms reflect God’s unconditional love and constant patience. And just like God, moms never stop their work. In fact, by the time a mother’s child turns 18 years old, she has spent more than 150,000 hours being their mom!

It would take a lifetime to tell our moms how thankful we are for them, and on Mother’s Day we can give them a glimpse of our appreciation. Send your mom these Bible verses to show her your love and remind her how good she is at being a mom.
