I'm sure to stir up some controversy with this because I often see posts on social media or hear comments of how a single parent has to play both the mother and father role and therefore should be recognized on both holidays. I believe however, that there is a reason that we have Mother's Day and Father's Day as two separate holidays in two separate months. They are two completely separate roles. Just because there is not a father in the picture does not automatically make the holiday default to me as someone who is filling both shoes.
Sure, single parents may carry 100% of the emotional, financial and household burdens but the role of Mother was created by God to be filled by a woman. The role of Father can only be filled with a man. There are specific qualities that reside in each of the sexes to be able to fulfill their role as intended. Although I may do things that one could claim as the father's role, I perform these tasks the way a woman would and not a man. There are things in life and about my son that I will not be able to teach him. There is a necessity for a man to teach a boy how to grow into a man.
Moms, hear me out. I celebrate you and the tremendous responsibility you hold each and every day. Just be very careful about how you position yourselves on the topic of being both a mother and a father. There is nothing in the Bible that supports that stance.
