A Mother's Love and Sacrifice: Following the Example of Jesus


Discover a mother’s love and sacrifice and the example set by Jesus. Learn how to sacrificially love and serve others, trusting in God’s provision.

Introduction: Living with Integrity: A Mother’s Love and Sacrifice

When a mother looks out for the needs of her children, there is always a cost. Growing up, my family didn’t have a lot of money, but my Mum always found a way to provide for us. She sacrificed many holidays so that she could afford to send her children to life-changing events like music schools and junior camps. This is a testament to the sacrificial love that mothers have for their children.

Practising Wisdom

Looking after the needs of others always involves some sacrifice. It may require giving up your time, money, energy, or even privacy. However, when we sacrifice our own needs for the sake of others, we are practicing wisdom. In Proverbs 31:10-31, we see the example of a wise and virtuous woman who goes above and beyond to care for her family and community.

Following the Example of Jesus

When we talk about sacrifice, we cannot overlook the ultimate example set by Jesus. He sacrificed everything for us, willingly going to the cross to save us from our sins. His focus was always on our needs, not his own. As followers of Christ, we are called to imitate his selfless love and sacrifice in our own lives.

God’s Promise

As we assume responsibility for meeting the needs of others, God promises to meet our own needs. This is all part of his plan. We can trust in God’s provision as we sacrificially give to others. It may not always be easy, but we can find comfort in knowing that God sees our sacrifices and rewards them.

By embracing the sacrificial love of a mother and following the example of Jesus, we can make a positive impact on those around us. Let’s be prepared to sacrifice for others, trusting in God to provide for our own needs as we meet the needs of others.
