Share a Meaningful Bible Verse for Mother’s Day

Numbers 6:24–26

As you probably (hopefully) know, Mother’s Day is this Sunday. If your master plan to honor your wife, mom, grandma, or women who aren’t moms (but basically are) is already well under way, well done. And if you just realized Mother’s Day is on Sunday, well, here’s something to get you started, before you frantically Google “last-minute Mother’s Day gift ideas.”

Proverbs 31:10

Every weekday for the last several years, Faithlife’s team of designers has created Bible art inspired by a verse of Scripture. It’s our Verse of the Day series. We’ve turned them into verse art magnets, verse art T-shirts, a coffee table book, canvas art, and more. But you know what’s been missing until now? An organized database of all of our Bible verse art.

Proverbs 31:30

We recently organized more than 1,000 of our Verse of the Day pieces into 103 neat, relevant categories. Now you can find Bible verse art on encouragement, comfort, wives (including several of our Proverbs 31 pieces), marriage, and more.

You can download these verses individually, or get all verses in a category at once. We’ll email you the files, and then you can do whatever you want with them.

Instead of sifting through cards covered in platitudes to settle on one that doesn’t quite fit, you could print off a meaningful passage of Scripture and make a special Mother’s Day card just for her.

Supplement whatever else you’re doing with a post on social media, a message, a text, or an email that uses Scripture to remind her how special she is.

Scripture is powerful and beautiful, but all Bible verses do not apply to all contexts. Take some time to find a verse that fits your situation, not just something that sounds nice.

Being a mom is a never-ending job. This weekend, remind the moms in your life that what they do matters to you, and more importantly, to a God who loves them even more.

    I know part of the FaithLife blogger’s job is to contribute to marketing, but I’m disappointed with this post and wanted to say something about it. This “pick a verse to share” is a bad idea unless we are decidedly ignoring context for the sake of poetry and a transported aesthetic sense that feels sentimental toward a good mother but does not feel respectful of scripture’s communication. I doubt FaithLife intends to characterize its customers that way.

    It’s OK to recognize good words and poetry. I do that, too — in certain Psalms and exalted “hymn” passages, for example. Proverbs are probably the most ripe field for this kind of pilfering. Beauty is to be recognized.

    The problem doesn’t come in choosing nice words or even in someone’s ignorantly saying, “Hey, this ‘verse’ is extra nice because it’s in the Bible.” A worse problem occurs when a Bible company that produces amazing products forgets that scripture has its meaning **in context**, and when that company encourages its customers and readers to do something with a “verse” completely out of context. That problem is compounded when this same company appropriates the greeting-card industry’s advantageous use of sentimentality in combination with the widespread malady of lifting verses from context.

    I hope anyone who shares one of these pieces of art with a mom in his/her life will take time at least to try to understand the passage in context . . . and maybe to share that meaning with his/her mother, as well. That would be a gift to a mom, but perpetuating the treatment of Bible verses as disconnected puzzle pieces is more like taking than giving.
