When Bathsheba went to King Solomon to speak to him… the king stood up to meet her, bowed down to her and sat down on his throne. He had a throne brought for the king’s mother, and she sat down at his right hand. -
King Solomon was rich, powerful, wise beyond his years, and the son of a legendary King and an infamous mother. We know very little of Solomon’s childhood, but it is clear that Bathsheba was important in the life of the young prince. We know his wisdom came from God, but his heart was likely nurtured by his mother as we find a tender, loving husband in The Song of Solomon. Soon after he became king, Solomon would honor his mother, treat her with respect, and show her (and all the kingdom) that she was much loved. She would have a royal throne by his side and an indelible place in his heart. May we so honor godly mothers!
The work, the trials, the heartbreak and the joy of motherhood is not unknown to our God. He created woman and knows every facet of our being: the soft spots and steel, fierceness and fears. We are so grateful that He gave us the capacity to be caregivers, servants, workers, friends, providers, partners and mothers. So many mothers are revered and remembered in Bible including Hannah, the mother who, gave her child into God’s service. “Sir, do you remember me?” Hannah asked. “I am the woman who stood here several years ago praying to the LORD. I asked the LORD to give me this boy, and he has granted my request. Now I am giving him to the LORD, and he will belong to the LORD his whole life.” (1 Samuel 1:26-
Jesus, Himself, demonstrated how great the bond of a mother’s love. “Now there stood by the cross of Jesus his mother…When Jesus therefore saw his mother, and the disciple standing by, whom he loved, he said to his mother, Woman, behold thy son! Then he saith to the disciple, Behold thy mother! And from that hour that disciple took her unto his own home.” (John 19:25-
