DAILY READINGS: Num. 23:27-24:25; Prov. 21:12-22:16; Luke 1:1-25

There stood by the cross of Jesus his mother. John 19:25

Six long hours of excruciating pain were almost passed. My Saviour had hung on that cross suffering like no other, as His dear mother, no doubt weeping, observed it all. From parched lips he said, “Woman, (a term of great respect) behold thy son” (John 19:26). To His disciple John, he said, “Behold thy mother” (John 19:27), and from that hour that disciple took her into his own home. The Saviour’s final act before His
victorious shout, “It is finished” (John 19:30), was to provide love, care, and protection, for His mother. May we show the same love for our mothers today. —Arnot P. McIntee

O give us homes with godly fathers, mothers,
Who always place their hope and trust in Him;
Whose tender patience turmoil never bothers,
Whose calm and courage trouble cannot dim. —B. B. Hart
