If you don’t already have a local church to attend, we would love to have you join us Sunday morning as we celebrate Mom. After service, celebrate motherhood with our “Muffins for Mom” event. This is a little treat to say “thank you” to the moms in our community for being mom.
The church service starts at 10:30 AM. Muffins for Mom to follow.
Mother’s Day reminds us that not only are mothers important, but Godly parents are important to children and the larger community.
Jesus encourages his disciples to pray and he promises that God answers persistent prayers. Motherhood is hard and can be exhausting, but Godly motherhood is so important and prayer is a vital part of parenting.
On Mother’s Day, Evan reminded us that God said moms are honorable. In the Ten Commandments honoring mom makes the top five – and it’s the first commandment with a positive promise. Jesus references it when he teaches the rich young ruler, as found in Matthew 10, and Paul quotes it again in Ephesians 6. God takes the honor of motherhood so seriously, that he warns us in Proverbs 30:17, “the eye that mocks a father and despises a mother’s instructions will be plucked out by ravens of the valley and eaten by vultures.”
Honoring mom is easy to say, but not always easy to do. God commands us to honor our moms and he holds motherhood in a place of great honor.
Moms, from day one your identity has been one of honor. You may not feel like that today and you’ve certainly have had days when you would passionately disagree, but God declared it. With all the things you want to improve, with all the comparisons and perfect pictures of motherhood you see in other women or on Facebook or Pintrest, with all the reasons why you know you should not be given a place of honor, God says you are honorable. You forever hold a place of honor in the sight of God and he will defend that honor.
