Davidisms - The Hand That Rocks the Cradle Is the Hand That Rules the World

Mothers. Moms. Mamas.

They affect the lives of everyone around them. It’s why the hand that rocks the cradle is the hand that rules the world.

Recall the Christmas narrative (Luke 1-3). Consider why God chose Mary to be the mother of Jesus - the Savior of the world.

Mary’s own words reflect the posture of her heart toward the Creator of all. Her song, known in Scripture as the “Magnificat” means “glorifies.”

Mary glorified the Lord. Her spirit rejoiced in him. She praised him for the great things he had done. Thanked him for the mighty deeds he performed (Luke 1:46-55).

Could this be the reason that God chose Mary as Jesus’s mother? Because she loved the Lord with all her heart? All her mind? All her soul? And she did so joyously and gratefully. Even until Jesus’s last gasp on the cross.

What an example Mary set for mothering.

She gives evidence to the vast influence a mother has over her children. And how her love never ends.

It’s still true today: The hand that rocks the cradle does rule the world.
