Being a mother can be a thankless job. If you look for love and approval in that job from anyone other than Christ you will soon grow tired and burdened. Jesus accomplished for you everything God demands of you—this is why God’s love toward you is truly unconditional! If you don’t fully grasp that, you will go about your days thinking you need to “try harder” to “do better” in order to earn something—when that something is what you already have in Christ! You will focus on your failures and your accomplishments instead of resting in the completed work of Christ—the truth that fuels you to go on serving.
