Studies on Old Testament Mothers

Every year on Mother’s Day I publish a new post on one of the mothers of the Old Testament. On Mother’s Day we honor the women who have made a difference in our lives and whose influence continues to follow us even after they are no longer with us.

In the Old Testament we find several stories of amazing women whose motherly love has remained an influence to this day.

Below are some of my posts on mothers and their love for their children. I love all their stories, but my favorite is Rizpah’s story. Most Christians are not familiar with her story. If you have never read the story of Rizpah and her sons, you owe it to yourself to read this amazing story of a mother’s love.

This coming Mother’s Day, May 11, 2014, I will post another story about a mother’s love, another one of those stories which most people have read or heard about. It is a story that needs to be told.

Happy Mother’s Day.
