Reflections on God’s Mother Love
After celebrating Mothering Sunday on Sunday, this week our reflections come from scriptures that portray God’s ‘mother love’.

Matthew 23:37
Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you who kill the prophets and stone those sent to you, how often I have longed to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, and you were not willing.

The self-sacrificial drive to protect one’s young is strong, the willingness to put oneself between your young and trouble. Jesus looks over Jerusalem with the protective desire of a mother hen who wishes to guard its young under its wings. But his heart is full of sadness, he would give himself, but they wouldn’t come under his wings, they wouldn’t accept his love.

Are you willing to come under his wings and trust his protection?

Psalm 91
4 He will cover you with his feathers,
and under his wings you will find refuge;
his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
5 You will not fear the terror of night,
nor the arrow that flies by day,
6 nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness,
nor the plague that destroys at midday.
