A Parents Love For There Child

As I watched this video I couldn't help but to think about Mary, the mother of Jesus and also to think about mother's in general. How hard must it had been for this mom to give up her son. Even though everything that was told too her by God, still this was her child. She cared him for 9mths delivered him and then raised him, until he became a man. There's no greater Love than the love a parent has for there child.

This must of been hard for Mary considering that the bible doesn't mention Joseph her husband, after Jesus was teaching in the temple as a child. Joseph must of passed away making Mary a single mom. Mary started to struggled with the fact that it was her son that had to be sacrificed.

Matthew 19:28-30
28Jesus said to them, "I tell you the truth, at the renewal of all things, when the Son of Man sits on his glorious throne, you who have followed me will also sit on twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel. 29And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother[a] or children or fields for my sake will receive a hundred times as much and will inherit eternal life. 30But many who are first will be last, and many who are last will be first.

How hard it is to give up what we love. But in Mary's case she already had the promise from God. She only had to keep her faith in what God had told her. If it would of been up to Mary, Jesus would of never made to the cross. Because her Love for him was so great. This was her son. We could say the same for God, how great is his love for us, that he gave up the one thing that he loved the most, his Son.

John 3;16-17
16"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son,[f] that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. 17For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.

Thanks for your comments. I will have to add your name to my list so I will know when you are posting. It's a real blessing to have a minister posting. For health reasons and some other reasons I have not been going to church much during the past year so this gives me a chance to hear God's word from someone I know is dedicated to the Lord. Sharon has been such a blessing to me also, a true friend.
Be blessed,

Thanks for your encouraging Comment, The poem I wrote reminded me also of the picture where Jesus is outside the door waiting for us to open it. Along with the scripture you spoke about. The post reminded me of when my son was leaving for the marines, It was hard to let him go know, but I knew this was something he had to do. During his time in Saudi and Kosovo was so hard for him but I could not do anything but pray, God was faithful. Letting go is hard, just like Mary had and Joseph had to learn to do as well. Great post my brother..
Blessings Lorie
