Mother’s Day is on Sunday, May 10. The special day is celebrated by families worldwide for the purpose of honoring mothers. The holiday began in 1908 when Anna Jarvis decided to honor her own mother. Jarvis described a mother as “the person who has done more for you than anyone in the world.” Christianity Daily compiled a list of top ten quotes for Christian mothers.

3) “Motherhood is a great honor and privilege, yet it is also synonymous with servanthood. Every day women are called upon to selflessly meet the needs of their families. Whether they are awake at night nursing a baby, spending their time and money on less-than-grateful teenagers, or preparing meals, moms continuously put others before themselves.” -Charles Stanley

4) “Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her: "Many women do noble things, but you surpass them all."Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised.” –Proverbs 31:28-30

5) “My mother said to me, 'If you are a soldier, you will become a general. If you are a monk, you will become the Pope.' Instead, I was a painter, and became Picasso.” -Pablo Picasso

6) “That strong mother doesn't tell her cub, Son, stay weak so the wolves can get you. She says, Toughen up, this is reality we are living in.” -Lauryn Hill

7) “He who robs his father and drives out his mother is a son who brings shame and disgrace. Stop listening to instruction, my son, and you will stray from the words of knowledge.” – Proverbs 19:26-27

8) "Honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the LORD your God is giving you.” –Exodus 20:12

9) “Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it.” – Proverbs 22:6

10) “Listen to your father, who gave you life, and do not despise your mother when she is old. Buy the truth and do not sell it; get wisdom, discipline and understanding. The father of a righteous man has great joy; he who has a wise son delights in him.” –Proverbs 23:22-24
