Mother’s Love

Mother’s Love

Gen 27:5 Now Rebekah was listening when Isaac spoke to his son Esau. So when Esau went to the field to hunt for game and bring it, 6 Rebekah said to her son Jacob, “I heard your father speak to your brother Esau, 7 ‘Bring me game and prepare for me delicious food, that I may eat it and bless you before the Lord before I die.’ 8 Now therefore, my son, obey my voice as I command you. 9 Go to the flock and bring me two good young goats, so that I may prepare from them delicious food for your father, such as he loves. 10 And you shall bring it to your father to eat, so that he may bless you before he dies.”


When you find love in the eyes of your mother, it is like finding extra favour in the eyes of God. If you follow up the verse above, you would find out that the father (Isaac) loved Esau but the mother loved Jacob and for this reason she ensured it was jacob that was blessed instead and as a result Jacob also found favour in the eyes of God.

What is the relationship between you and your mother? Do you do things that make her love and bless you or do you do things that make her cry and regret bringing you to life? Do you do things to delight her or to deceive her? Do you actually have time for her?

Your mother may not be doing things that delight you after all moses’ mother couldn’t afford to shelter him but that doesn’t mean she loved him less. Note, for her to put her life on hold for nine months for you and went through the pains of labour just to bring you to life. she deserves your love, obedience and attention so that her soul, her heart can bless you and I assure you God, Himself, will favour you.
