The Mother Bond

The English word "mother" originated from an old Anglo-Saxon (a tribe of the Germans, some of whom became some of the English) word which meant to bring forth. In English translations of the Holy Scriptures, "mother" is used to translate the Hebrew root word pronounced aim, which means the bond, as in the central being from which offspring are created and congregate (according to that literal definition, it's easy to see why the true Church of God is referred to as a woman with children). Although it's not obvious in the English translation, Jesus Christ used that original Hebrew meaning of children gathered around a mother when He said "23:37 O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not!" (Matthew 23:37 KJV).

"Eve" was the first human mother.

"3:20 And Adam called his wife's name Eve; because she was the mother of all living." (Genesis 3:20 KJV)

Although it's somewhat ironic, but nevertheless obvious and necessary, by definition, that the first mother had no mother of her own ("2:22 And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man" Genesis 2:22 KJV), that makes plain that God is the ultimate Creator of His children, whether physical or spiritual. The creation of a human child is accomplished by God and a woman i.e. "Thus saith the LORD, thy redeemer, and He that formed thee from the womb."

"44:24 Thus saith the LORD, thy redeemer, and he that formed thee from the womb, I am the LORD that maketh all things; that stretcheth forth the heavens alone; that spreadeth abroad the earth by myself" (Isaiah 44:24 KJV)

"Honour thy father and thy mother"

Honoring one's mother is a Commandment of God.

The Holy Scriptures

"20:12 Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee." (Exodus 20:12 KJV)

The honour and respect due to a righteous mother is a triumph of good over evil.

"1:7 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction. 1:8 My son, hear the instruction of thy father, and forsake not the law of thy mother: 1:9 For they shall be an ornament of grace unto thy head, and chains about thy neck." (Proverbs 1:7-9 KJV)

"6:20 My son, keep thy father's commandment, and forsake not the law of thy mother: 6:21 Bind them continually upon thine heart, and tie them about thy neck. 6:22 When thou goest, it shall lead thee; when thou sleepest, it shall keep thee; and when thou awakest, it shall talk with thee. 6:23 For the commandment is a lamp; and the law is light; and reproofs of instruction are the way of life." (Proverbs 6:20-23 KJV)

"10:1 The proverbs of Solomon. A wise son maketh a glad father: but a foolish son is the heaviness of his mother." (Proverbs 10:1 KJV)

"15:20 A wise son maketh a glad father: but a foolish man despiseth his mother." (Proverbs 15:20 KJV)

"19:26 He that wasteth his father, and chaseth away his mother, is a son that causeth shame, and bringeth reproach." (Proverbs 19:26 KJV)

"20:20 Whoso curseth his father or his mother, his lamp shall be put out in obscure darkness." (Proverbs 20:20 KJV)

"23:22 Hearken unto thy father that begat thee, and despise not thy mother when she is old." (Proverbs 23:22 KJV)

"23:24 The father of the righteous shall greatly rejoice: and he that begetteth a wise child shall have joy of him. 23:25 Thy father and thy mother shall be glad, and she that bare thee shall rejoice." (Proverbs 23:24-25 KJV)

"28:24 Whoso robbeth his father or his mother, and saith, It is no transgression; the same is the companion of a destroyer." (Proverbs 28:24 KJV)

"29:15 The rod and reproof give wisdom: but a child left to himself bringeth his mother to shame." (Proverbs 29:15 KJV)

"30:11 There is a generation that curseth their father, and doth not bless their mother. 30:12 There is a generation that are pure in their own eyes, and yet is not washed from their filthiness. 30:13 There is a generation, O how lofty are their eyes! and their eyelids are lifted up. 30:14 There is a generation, whose teeth are as swords, and their jaw teeth as knives, to devour the poor from off the earth, and the needy from among men." (Proverbs 30:11-14 KJV)
