Luther felt that our love for God should be so compelling, that when it comes to the commandment to honor our mothers, even if we didn’t have mothers, we ought to ask God to give us mothers erected out of stone or wood, so we would have an avenue by which to keep this commandment. Yet Luther exclaims “How much more gladly should we be to honor and obey, since God has given us living mothers!” [Luther’s Large Catechism]. Blessing after blessing has come from God through them. May it also be said of us, that we have learned to become blessings to them.
