Happy Mother’s Day?

This is one of the two “Happy Mother’s Day” tweets that the White House Twitter account has sent out so far (here’s the other). I’m sure they’ll post something that’s less vulgar and offensive than this on Mother’s Day (I sure hope so, anyway). But for now, this stands.

“Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD,
the fruit of the womb a reward.” (Psalm 127:3, ESV)

That’s how God views and explains children. Not as an inconvenience. Not as something which creates a need for “preventive care”. Instead, God reveals to us that children are a gift and blessing. And He reveals this to us so that we can think the same thing, faithfully confessing His word.

Mothers, rejoice in your gifts. Please don’t listen to the lies of those who despise life in favor of promoting selfish desires and plans.

Mothers, no matter how much you struggle in your vocation, no matter whether this was your plan or not, you are indeed blessed by the Lord.
