Honoring our Moms

Honoring our Moms

Then the Lord God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper who is just right for him.”  So the Lord God formed from the ground all the wild animals and all the birds of the sky. He brought them to the man to see what he would call them, and the man chose a name for each one.  He gave names to all the livestock, all the birds of the sky, and all the wild animals. But still there was no helper just right for him. So the Lord God caused the man to fall into a deep sleep. While the man slept, the Lord God took out one of the man’s ribs and closed up the opening.  Then the Lord God made a woman from the rib, and he brought her to the man. “At last!” the man exclaimed. “This one is bone from my bone, and flesh from my flesh! She will be called ‘woman,’ because she was taken from ‘man.’” This explains why a man leaves his father and mother and is joined to his wife, and the two are united into one.   Genesis 2:18-24

The Four Arenas of Mothers

The physical realm- actually birthing a child, shelter, food

Honor Your Mother… with Respect

Honor your father and mother. Then you will live a long, full life in the land the Lord your God is giving you.    Exodus20:12

“Honor your father and mother.” This is the first commandment with a promise: If you honor your father and mother, “things will go well for you, and you will have a long life on the earth.

Honor Your Mother… with Time   Ephesians 6:2-3

So be careful how you live. Don’t live like fools, but like those who are wise.  Make the most of every opportunity in these evil days.  Don’t act thoughtlessly, but understand what the Lord wants you to do.   Ephesians 5:15-17

Honor Your Mother… with Love

So now I am giving you a new commandment: Love each other. Just as I have loved you, you should love each other. 35 Your love for one another will prove to the world that you are my disciples.”   John 13:34

Honor Your Mother’s Sacrifice

We know what real love is because Jesus gave up his life for us. So we also ought to give up our lives for our brothers and sisters.   1 John 3:16
