A Mother’s Unconditional Love

By Janina Jolag

Her children arise and call her blessed.
(Proverbs 31:28 NIV)

As Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, I begin to think of the word love and what it truly means to me. Then in that same instant, my warrior twin boys come to mind and I begin to think. The love of a mother for her children is as close to what the Bible describes as “agape,” the highest form of love that human beings are capable of reaching.

A mother’s love is truly unconditional. You would give the world just to make sure your children are feeling safe, admired and loved. You look for ways to make sure that your children will never feel that sense of emptiness, so you scramble to make ends meet to make sure they don’t feel that at any moment in time – again unconditional love. A heart of a mother is like a rare jewel. We love our children during the worst and best of times. We nourish them with eyes closed and open arms. Like a rare diamond, not all mothers are the same, but we shine and keep shining like a rare diamond in hopes to give that unconditional love to our children. We may struggle, start over and even fail, but we are mothers who can love unlike any other person, and that is what we call agape. The kind of love that God shows towards us and expects us to show towards others.

My twin warriors!
