What Is The Importance Of Mother’s Day Celebration?

Importance of Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day, believe it or not, isn’t just a made-up event to boost card and flower sales. It has a long history dating back to ancient Greece. During the Lenten season in the late 1800s, parishioners in the United Kingdom and Britain observed “Mothering Day,” when they returned to worship at their home or “mother” church.

Early twentieth-century American celebrations concentrated on women advocating for peace and unity following the Civil War’s severe divisions. Anna Jarvis, who spent her entire life alone and childless, conceived up a day to celebrate her own mother and all mothers who had given and sacrificed for their children in 1908.

Jarvis proposed that people contact their mothers, accompany her to a church service, and present her with a white carnation. Jarvis was actively pushing the government against the vacation at the time of her death in 1948. She even spent much of her personal funds on legal bills to stop the use of the name “Mother’s Day,” expressing her dissatisfaction that the holiday had become over-commercialized and misrepresented the original concept.

As a Christian, I appreciate the opportunity to reflect and give thanks. We must remember how far a genuine thank you and expression of gratitude may go. It’s crucial to consider how God has gifted and utilized unique individuals to reflect His character and love to others. In Acts 18, Priscilla and her husband Aquila take in Apollos, a passionate preacher.

Priscilla and Aquila both taught Apollos more about Christ’s gospel, his salvation via death on the cross, and His resurrection victory over death. With clarity, compassion, and connection, Apollos proceeded to teach and preach the Gospel. The preaching ministry of Apollos began at the home of this devout woman and her husband. The kingdom’s Priscilla and Aquillas should be remembered, properly honored, and respected for their contributions to God’s work.

Mother’s Day is an occasion to pay tribute to the mothers who have influenced your life. To truly express “thank you,” it requires time and thought. On this day, I am thankful for Irene Hammers, who not only taught me about prayer, but also provided materials for my parents to teach me and pray with me.

Pam Robinson, who had no reason to care about me as a freshman at OBU but did, and as a result of her, I had a better college experience. I am incredibly grateful to my wife, who is driven by a desire to serve others, to improve her piece of the world, and to love our two sons. I like all the women who believe that Christ is central and that His love should be made known in a gentle and humble manner. They do it because it is necessary.
