A mothers role is to carry a child. Bring a child into this world and nurture him or her with the God given tools that a mother is given. A mother is protective of her young. She has a kindred spirit with that child. A mother also knows that a father(guide) takes that child and shows that child the way of the world and how to live within in it. Both provide security and love. When these basic things are broken. If there is a deficit in any of the links here, the child misses out on a lot. This does not mean these things cannot be made up for. God has the same pattern. God allows us to find our way to him. Through Jesus mankind is forgiven for shortcomings. God is a God of second chance. We are not lost.
The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not be in want. He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he restores my soul. He guides me in paths of righteousness for his name's sake. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Surely goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the LORD
