How to Honor your Mother

Mother’s Day is always a special day for it is a set-apart day to honor our mothers. This will be true in church this Sunday. For many of you, your mothers are still around, and you will be able to express love through a call and a card. For others of you, your mother has passed, and you will remember her with fondness and, perhaps, some sadness. But we all have the opportunity, not just on this special day but every day, to honor our mothers by following their godly instruction. The Bible teaches us to do so, “Listen my son, to your father’s instruction and do not forsake your mother’s teaching” (Proverbs 1:8). Yes, we honor our dear mothers when we first listen to them, then learn from them, and finally live by their teachings.

I ran across something funny—

What My Mother Taught Me

My mother taught me RELIGION: When I spilled grape juice on the carpet, she instructed, “You better pray the stain will come out of the carpet.”

My mother taught me LOGIC: From her words, “Because I said so, that’s why.”

My mother taught me FORESIGHT: “Make sure you wear clean underwear, in case you’re in an accident.”

My mother taught me IRONY: “Keep laughing, and I’ll give you something to cry about.”

My mother taught me about STAMINA: “You’ll sit there ’til all that spinach is finished.”

My mother taught me about WEATHER: “It looks as if a tornado swept through your room.”

My mother taught me about BEHAVIOR MODIFICATION: “Stop acting like your father!”

My mother taught me about ENVY: “There are millions of less fortunate children in this world who don’t have a wonderful Mom like you do!”


Devotedly yours, 

Pastor Ron
