Mother’s Day is as appropriate as any occasion to recapture the Biblical maternal images of God in order to see further truths about God.

Thanks for this helpful article, Shiao. You left out my very favorite reference, however, Psalm 131:2:

"But I have calmed and quieted myself, I am like a weaned child with its mother; like a weaned child I am content." (NIV)

That picture is one of the best in the entire Bible, and it would be hard for it to be more explicitly maternal!

Thanks David. Very nice. I missed that one!
Thanks for adding it.
