Advent is a time of preparation, and the perfect time to get started on a Bible Study for Mother’s Day. Consider using this list to prepare and worship during the last weeks leading up to Mother’s Day
Instead of striving to meet this high calling, it is easy to relax our understanding of “love your neighbor as yourself” into something banal like “be nice.” But being nice is often nothing more than a facade and an excuse for disengaging from the people around us. Leviticus 19:17 commands us to do the opposite. “Reprove your neighbor, or you will incur guilt yourself” (Lev. 19:17). These two commands—both to love and to reprove your neighbor—seem like unlikely fellows, but they are brought together in the proverb, “Better is open rebuke than hidden love” (Prov. 27:5).
Regrettably, too often the lesson we absorb at church is always to be nice. If this becomes our rule in the workplace, it can have disastrous personal and professional effects. Niceness can lull Christians into allowing bullies and predators to abuse and manipulate them and to do the same to others. Niceness can lead Christian managers to gloss over workers’ shortcomings in performance reviews, depriving them of a reason to sharpen their skills and keep their jobs in the long run. Niceness may lead anyone into holding onto resentment, bearing a grudge, or seeking revenge. Leviticus tells us that loving people sometimes means making an honest rebuke. This is not a license for insensitivity. When we rebuke, we need to do so with humility—we may also need to be rebuked in the situation—and compassion.

Mother’s Day Bible Study
This Mother’s Day, we’re going to be looking at the theme of “motherhood” in the Bible. There are a lot of different ways to define what motherhood is, and our study will focus on one aspect: the relationship between mothers and their children. We’ll look at how God’s love is like a mother’s love, and how that relates to how God cares for us.
Mother’s Day is a time to celebrate your mother and all that she has done for you. It is also a time to thank God for the gift of family, and to remember that He is the one who gives us the best gifts in life. The Bible is full of stories about mothers, so today we will be looking at just a few of them.
The first story we will look at today is the story of Abraham and Sarah. The Bible says that Abraham was 99 years old when God told him that he would have a son with Sarah (Genesis 17:17). Abraham was an amazing man who trusted God even though it seemed impossible for him to have children at his age. When God told Abraham about Isaac, he did not say anything about how old Isaac would be when he had him; instead, He said that Isaac would be born when his own body had been “as good as dead” (Genesis 18:11). This means that Abraham knew he was going to die before he would see Isaac grow up, yet he still believed God.
The second story we will look at today is the story of Moses’ mother Jochebed (Exodus 2:1-10). When Moses was born, Pharaoh decre
