Verses for Mother’s Day—As Christians, let’s know how to respect and care for our mothers or wives from these verses on this beautiful Mother’s Day.
Showing Respect at Home
My son, hear the instruction of your father, and forsake not the law of your mother: For they shall be an ornament of grace to your head, and chains about your neck.
For God commanded, saying, Honor your father and mother: and, He that curses father or mother, let him die the death. But you say, Whoever shall say to his father or his mother, It is a gift, by whatever you might be profited by me; And honor not his father or his mother, he shall be free. Thus have you made the commandment of God of none effect by your tradition.
Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband.
Listen to your father that begat you, and despise not your mother when she is old. Buy the truth, and sell it not; also wisdom, and instruction, and understanding. The father of the righteous shall greatly rejoice: and he that begets a wise child shall have joy of him.
He that wastes his father, and chases away his mother, is a son that causes shame, and brings reproach. Cease, my son, to hear the instruction that causes to err from the words of knowledge.
My son, keep your father’s commandment, and forsake not the law of your mother: Bind them continually on your heart, and tie them about your neck. When you go, it shall lead you; when you sleep, it shall keep you; and when you wake, it shall talk with you.

Whoever finds a wife finds a good thing, and obtains favor of the LORD.
Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.
