Mother’s Day 18
- Mother’s Day
#1 PARENTS ARE A BLESSING FROM GOD TO BE HONORED.
Honor your father and your mother, as the Lord your God has commanded you, so that you may live long and that it may go well with you in the land the Lord your God is giving you. Deuteronomy 5:16 (NIV)
#2 HONORING YOUR PARENTS IS A LIFELONG JOB.
“Honor your father and mother”—which is the first commandment with a promise— “so that it may go well with you and that you may enjoy long life on the earth.” Ephesians 6:2 (NIV)
#3 BRING JOY TO THOSE WHO GAVE YOU LIFE.
Listen to your father, who gave you life, and don’t despise your mother when she is old. Get the truth and never sell it; also get wisdom, discipline, and good judgment. The father of godly children has cause for joy. What a pleasure to have children who are wise. So give your father and mother joy! May she who gave you birth be happy. Proverbs 23:22-25 (NLT)
#4 FOLLOW JESUS’ EXAMPLE.
When Jesus saw his mother there, and the disciple whom he loved standing nearby, he said to her, “Woman, here is your son,” and to the disciple, “Here is your mother.” From that time on, this disciple took her into his home. John 19:26-27 (NIV)
