It goes almost without fail that if someone stands up to give a Sacrament talk on Motherâ€™s Day, s/he will use the story of the 2000 Stripling Warriors as a scriptural support for amazing mothers.
This kind of bugs me though.
There are several mothers in the scriptures who we can use as example in our own lives, whose actions and character mirror that of Jesus.
Here are a couple.
Eveâ€™s desire for knowledge eventually resulted in our becoming mortal. Rebecca was an example of charity and hard work. Rachel showed us the virtue of patience. Mary, the mother of Jesus, had a simple faith and was determined to do the Lordâ€™s will no matter the cost. Sariah was convinced of the power of the Lord.
Why is it we never hear about these great examples on Motherâ€™s Day?
