In a world in which most religions begin with God the Father or some sort of male image of the divine, and are founded by male figures such as Moses, Buddha, Jesus and Muhammad, do we undervalue Motherhood or the role of women in faith?
First of all unquestionably man is the primary creation of humanity, but the woman was a necessary part in order for there to be procreation. So then woman was birthed out of mankind’s need for fulfillment and sustainment. God made Adam and Eve and respectfully gave them dominion over the earth.
All throughout scripture and history the need of womanhood or motherhood has been enormously substantiated. Even though Jesus was the Son of God, he had to be born of a Woman in order to properly atone for mans sins. It should also be noted that every human that we consider to have been a gift to the world, had to be first wrapped in the womb of a woman before his or her talent could be tested. That in itself is a great testimony to every mother, and that is to be given the opportunity to birth brand new Mercy to us every day. Who knows what the next mother will bring us as a gift from the Mind of God. Every birth though viewed as unexpected at times, was a part of the original Masters Plan. James 1:17 says “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above and cometh down from the Father…” Therefore in my opinion if God chooses every gift he also chooses who brings it into the world! A package solidifies that the gift was intentional or on purpose; therefore, Gift-Wrapping is important to the gift and to the recipient.
Remember packages come in all shapes, sizes and colors but they are still considered Gifts….Happy Mother’s Day!
