The thought of mother-love arouses in the human heart a pure, sweet, tender sentiment. It recalls in human experience a kindly picture of gentle patience, protection, inspiration, and never failing helpfulness, for it embodies much of the divine nature. But looking beyond this symbol to God, we realize how infinitely greater, how all-embracing, is the love of God, our Father-Mother, infinite Life and Love.

Humanity needs to understand the motherhood of God. Many today have been brought face to face with the necessity of something more substantial and effective than human efficiency with which to meet its needs. Material resources have proved their undependability and illusiveness. During the present economic situation, many a habitually care-free outlook upon existence, based on the belief in material sufficiency, has been replaced by a subtle, dread apprehension of impending disaster. This condition, however, has played its part in hastening a spiritual awakening, and like tired children many have turned to God to receive comfort and wisdom, also to find that they are experiencing the promise given in Isaiah, "As one whom his mother comforteth, so will I comfort you; and ye shall be comforted."
