The Bible is a love note. It is a love note from God detailing his plan for our salvation, His hope for his creation, and His unconditional love for mankind and details on how to choose to accept his love. Therefore, when it comes to writing a letter or card to someone you love, quoting verses from the Bible is both perfect and practical.
This Mother’s Day, consider using Bible verses in your Mother’s Day cards or letters. For a Christian Mom, the spirit lifting words from the Bible will remind her that she is loved, unconditionally, by God and you. Since the Lord is the source of love, use His love to help you communicate your feelings. This will make your Mother’s Day cards and letters meaningful and unique.
For the purposes of this guide, all quoted verses will be from the NIV (New International Version of the Bible). If you or the Christian Mom in your life prefer another translation, consider a site such as the Bible Gateway to search and retrieve the same passage from a number of different Bible translations.
Tips for Choosing Bible Verses for Mother’s Day Letters and Cards
Be sure to choose a Bible verse that encapsulates the love, devotion, or respect you feel for the mom in your life.
Be sure to follow up the verse with a personal note that elaborates on why you chose that verse.
Do not be afraid that your words will be misunderstood. Be bold; if you are sincere, the Holy Spirit will speak through your words and be understood.
Bible Verses for Mother’s Day Letters and Cards – His words for the Christian Mom
10. Proverbs 1:8-9
Listen, my son, to your father’s instruction
and do not forsake your mother’s teaching.
They will be a garland to grace your head
and a chain to adorn your neck.
9. Proverbs 10:1
A wise son brings joy to his father,
but a foolish son grief to his mother.
8. Matthew 15:4-6
For God said, ‘Honor your father and mother’ and ‘Anyone who curses his father or mother must be put to death.’ But you say that if a man says to his father or mother, ‘Whatever help you might otherwise have received from me is a gift devoted to God,’ he is not to ‘honor his father’ with it. Thus you nullify the word of God for the sake of your tradition.
7. 1 Corinthians 7:2-4
But since there is so much immorality, each man should have his own wife, and each woman her own husband. The husband should fulfill his marital duty to his wife, and likewise the wife to her husband. The wife’s body does not belong to her alone but also to her husband. In the same way, the husband’s body does not belong to him alone but also to his wife.
6. 1 Corinthians 13:4-7
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
5. 1 Corinthians 13:13
And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
4. Ecclesiastes 4:9-12
Two are better than one,
because they have a good return for their work:
If one falls down,
his friend can help him up.
But pity the man who falls
and has no one to help him up!
Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm.
But how can one keep warm alone?
Though one may be overpowered,
two can defend themselves.
A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.
3. Song of Solomon 7:10-12
I belong to my lover,
and his desire is for me.
Come, my lover, let us go to the countryside,
let us spend the night in the villages.
Let us go early to the vineyards
to see if the vines have budded,
if their blossoms have opened,
and if the pomegranates are in bloom-
there I will give you my love.
2. Colossians 3:12-14
Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.
1. Ephesians 5:25-27
Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her to make her holy, cleansing
