Mother's Day: Honoring God's Indispensable Gift
"God couldn't be everywhere, so He made mothers." While not theologically accurate, this old Jewish saying describes beautifully the significant role
mothers have in our lives.
Motherhood is one of God's greatest gifts to humanity. A loving, committed mother is an indispensable person in our development. Just imagine a world
without mothers. It would be a sterile place indeed. Mothers instill powerful social and nurturing characteristics in each generation. It is principally from
their mothers that children learn the virtues of sacrifice, sharing, valuing others, compassion, community and a host of other interpersonal values and skills
that enable humans to live together in peace.
All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them.
Ten days have passed since Jesus ascended to heaven and instructed his disciples to stay in Jerusalem. The day of
Pentecost has now arrived. Pentecost is not just something found in the New Testament, it is actually an Old Testament
holiday tied with the Feast of Harvest, or the Feast of Weeks, noting the beginning of harvest time.
This is also a time when religious pilgrims would travel to Jerusalem from faraway lands. So “God-fearing Jews from every
nation” are present for this event.
