I want to help God the Mother in Her work
When I was younger, I often went to the market with my mom by bus. In the noisy crowd, my mom held my hand tightly with one hand and carried her heavy shopping bag with the other. Since everything looked amazing and exciting, I often made my mom stop so I could see things that interested me. Looking at things to buy and taking care of me, my mom’s day at the market was always tiring. But even after finishing her shopping, she was unable to rest because she had to carry her heavy bag full of items all by herself.
As soon as we arrived home, all my family members including me gathered together and took the things out of my mom’s shopping bag; it was full of colorful socks and dresses. We looked at ourselves in the mirror while holding up clothes and trying on our new socks. Only after looking at us being so excited did my mom lie down on the cold floor to give her tired body some rest to recover from motion sickness.
Although she did so much work shopping all day, there was actually nothing she brought for herself. She always wore her old sewed up socks, and her face was so dry and rough from the hard farm work. But she did not buy any new socks or good cosmetics. She did so much for us, not taking care of herself. Even now, however, she still feels sorry to us for not buying us more delicious food and prettier dresses.
When I think about my mom’s shopping bag which was full of stuff for my family members and nothing for herself, I am reminded of our Heavenly Mother. The life of our Heavenly Mother is also full of things for Her children. She sacrifices Herself endlessly for Her children, but She always thinks that Her love is not enough. I feel so sorry to Mother that I cannot lift up my head before Her.
Now I will no longer take the sacrifice of Heavenly Mother for granted. Walking with Mother who is carrying the heavy burdens of Her children’s sins, I will help Mother in Her work until the glory of our God the Mother and Father Christ Ahnsahnghong fills the whole earth.
