I am blessed to have many jobs in my life here on Earth, but without a doubt my most important and honored job is that of being a mother. God has blessed us with many children and even lots of grandchildren. Since I believe being a mother is a blessing and an honor I thought I would gather some quotes of what others are saying about mothers. Here are just 21 great Christian quotes about and for mothers.

Featured Quote ” When Eve was brought unto Adam, he became filled with the Holy Spirit, and gave her the most sanctified, the most glorious of appellations. He called her Eve, that is to say, the Mother of All. He did not style her wife, but simply mother, mother of all living creatures. In this consists the glory and the most precious ornament of woman.” ~ Martin Luther

Bible Quotes About Mothers

And Adam called his wife’s name Eve; because she was the mother of all living. ~ Genesis 3:20

And God said unto Abraham, As for Sarai thy wife, thou shalt not call her name Sarai, but Sarah shall her name be.  And I will bless her, and give thee a son also of her: yea, I will bless her, and she shall be a mother of nations; kings of people shall be of her. ~ Genesis 17:15-16

The rod and reproof give wisdom: but a child left to himself bringeth his mother to shame. ~Proverbs 29:15

She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness.  Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her.  Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all.  Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised. (Proverbs 31:27-30)

Now there stood by the cross of Jesus his mother, and his mother’s sister, Mary the wife of Cleophas, and Mary Magdalene.  When Jesus therefore saw his mother, and the disciple standing by, whom he loved, he saith unto his mother, Woman, behold thy son!  Then saith he to the disciple, Behold thy mother! And from that hour that disciple took her unto his own home. (John 19:25-27)

I would encourage all those new mamas: take a nap when the babies nap! You can do your housecleaning another day. ~ Michelle Duggar

Conclusion

Your mother’s voice is the first voice you ever hear – even before you are born. Even as a newborn baby, you know your Mother and prefer her above anyone else. Cherish your mother and be sure she knows you appreciate everything she does for you. The days are short, love your mother before time is gone. If your mother has already gone on before you, take some time to recall memories of her. Share these memories with your family so that she will live on in your hearts.
