What constitutes motherhood?
The Christian Science Monitor
Widely discussed cases involving "surrogate mothers," and other recent events in our society, have prompted many people to consider more deeply what constitutes motherhood. Such issues, and their implications in human lives, can be deeply disturbing.
As a Christian Scientist I take refuge in this unassailable fact: God is our true Mother. Intimations of the motherhood of God are found in the Bible. In the book of Psalms, for example, the image of finding safety under the shadow of God's wings appears frequently. See, for example, Ps. 17:8; 36:7; 57:1; 61:4; 63:7; 91:4. And in Isaiah, God is represented as saying, "As one whom his mother comforteth, so will I comfort you." Isa. 66:13. Many passages in the Bible convey a sense of the comforting, nurturing, mothering love of God.
