A Mother's Love

I was so moved by today's reading between the dispute over an infant.

Two prostitute both had a baby. One lost hers by accidently laying on her son...suffocating him. She switched her dead son with the one alive. When the matter of whose living child really belonged to was brought to King Solomon. He told them to take a sword and cut the baby in half.

One mother filled with compassion for her son said to the king, "Please, my lord, give her the living baby! Don't kill him!"

The other mother said, "Neither I nor you shall have him. Cut him in two!"

Through Solomon's wisdom to discern matter, he was able to identify the true mother of the living son. The first mother.

I am so happy to read about happy endings...that serves justice. What an amazing example of a mother's love. I couldn't help but tear up for the mother who loved her own son so deeply that she'd rather have him alive and with another woman than bear the sight of his death.

And it is so amazing that Solomon asks God for discernment and wisdom...nothing more. But God gave him more than he could even imagine.

I am so grateful for my mom. She is a very noble woman. Full of wisdom, joy, love, kindness and determination. And may I add...SUPER COOL?! Ya, my mom is the best! Overall, I think all mom's are so awesome!!! Yay for MOMS!!!

My mom and nephew Taedyn :)

Yeah it was good timing for mother's day too. Definitely a good example of selfless love and selfish love.

awwwww! I love that you posted pics of ur mom Tina haha. AND you both are soooo cute; you both have great smiles! :)

It was an interesting story bout the prostitutes; I always thought it was a little odd that the baby was killed because his mom laid on him... sheesh she was deep sleeper I guess?
