Behold Thy Mother

Posted by AJ Gubernick on

“No love in mortality comes closer to approximating the pure love of

Jesus Christ than the selfless love a devoted mother has for her child.”

Elder Holland said in a General Conference talk, “You see, it is not only

that they bear us, but they continue bearing with us. It is not only the

prenatal carrying but the lifelong carrying that makes mothering such a

staggering feat. Of course, there are heartbreaking exceptions, but most

mothers know intuitively, instinctively that this is a sacred trust of the

highest order.” (Behold Thy Mother)

There is a special bond between a mother and her child. As young adults

look to find a spouse, it is important to consider that the person you

marry will be the parent to your children. Find someone whom you can

share the joys of bringing children into this world. I am grateful for my

mother and will love her always. May we remember on this Mother’s

day, all the blessings that come as a result of a mother who loves us.

“To all of our mothers everywhere, past, present, or future, I say, “Thank

you. Thank you for giving birth, for shaping souls, for forming

character, and for demonstrating the pure love of Christ.” To Mother

Eve, to Sarah, Rebekah, and Rachel, to Mary of Nazareth, and to a

Mother in Heaven, I say, “Thank you for your crucial role in fulfilling

the purposes of eternity.” – Elder Jeffrey R. Holland
