The Name of Mother According to the Will of Jesus Christ
One of my favorite stories in the bible is when two women argued over being the mother of a child before King Solomon. King Solomon of Israel ruled between two women both claiming to be the mother of a living child switched at birth. Solomon revealed their true feelings and relationship to the child by suggesting the baby be cut in two, each woman to receive half.
In the end, one woman was willing to split the child in half and the other woman was wanting to give the child to the other woman so the child would not be hurt. King Solomon gave the child to the woman who did not want the child hurt at any cost because he knew she was the real mother. A mother can be a sister, aunt, grandparent, cousin, foster parent, or legal guardian. If you receive a mother’s love, honor her.
Jesus names a mother by her love not by biological birthing. He himself stated, Matthew 12:50 “For whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother.”

King Solomon was a wise king that had the favor of God” He made Solomon the wisest and richest king ever. below is the request Solomon asked of God.
1Jubga 3: 9- 14KJV 9Give, therefore, thy servant an understanding heart to judge thy people, that I may discern between good and bad: for who is able to judge this thy so great a people? 10And the speech pleased the Lord, that Solomon had asked this thing. 11And God said unto him, Because thou hast asked this thing, and hast not asked for thyself long life; neither hast asked riches for thyself, nor hast asked the life of thine enemies; but hast asked for thyself understanding to discern judgment;
12Behold, I have done according to thy words: lo, I have given thee a wise and an understanding heart; so that there was none like thee before thee, neither after thee shall any arise like unto thee. 13And I have also given thee that which thou hast not asked, both riches, and honor: so that there shall not be any among the kings like unto thee all thy days. 14And if thou wilt walks in my ways, to keep my statutes and my commandments, as thy father David did walk, then I will lengthen thy days.
King Solomon rule between two harlot women who claimed the motherhood of one living child. They claimed the child had been switched at birth.
1Kings 3: 16- 28 16Then came there two women, that were harlots, unto the king, and stood before him. 17And the one woman said, O my lord, I and this woman dwell in one house, and I was delivered of a child with her in the house. 18And it came to pass the third day after that I was delivered, that this woman was delivered also: and we were together; there was no stranger with us in the house, save we two in the house. 19And this woman’s child died in the night; because she overlaid it. 20And she arose at midnight, and took my son from beside me, while thine handmaid slept, and laid it in her bosom, and laid her dead child in my bosom.
21And when I rose in the morning to give my child suck, behold, it was dead: but when I had considered it in the morning, behold, it was not my son, which I did bear. 22And the other woman said, Nay; but the living is my son, and the dead is thy son. And this said, No; but the dead is thy son, and the living is my son. Thus they spake before the king.
23Then said the king, The one saith, This is my son that liveth, and thy son is the dead: and the other saith, Nay; but thy son is the dead, and my son is the living. 24And the king said, Bring me a sword. And they brought a sword before the king. 25And the king said, Divide the living child in two, and give half to the one, and half to the other.
26Then spake the woman whose the living child was unto the king, for her bowels yearned upon her son, and she said, O my lord, give her the living child, and in no wise slay it. But the other said, Let it be neither mine nor thine, but divide it. 27Then the king answered and said, Give her the living child, and in no wise slay it: she is the mother thereof. 28And all Israel heard of the judgment which the king had judged; and they feared the king: for they saw that the wisdom of God was in him, to do judgment.

Isaiah 49:15 – Can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? yea, they may forget, yet will I not forget thee.
