Have you thanked God for your mother today? If not, you should.
Many of us were privileged and blessed to have been raised by God-fearing mothers. Mothers who not only taught us biblical principles, but demonstrated those principles in their daily lives. It goes without saying that many of us would not be Christians today if not for our mothers.
If you fail to mention your mother in your prayers, you’re forgetting to thank God for one of your greatest blessings. The following real life examples should remind us of how blessed we are to have Christian mothers:
At this moment across our country, thousands of young children are neglected, hungry or even sick because their mothers lay passed out from drugs or alcohol. Thank God for your mother.
Throughout the Ukraine hundreds of children cuddle together in fear and despair because their mothers were killed from a shell or bomb blast. Thank God for your mother.
In nearby communities, scores of children are forced to fend for themselves because their mothers are partying at bars or nightclubs. Thank God for your mother.
At this moment, hundreds of mothers are making plans to sell their daughters to strangers in order to support their heroin or crack cocaine habit. Thank God for your mother.
When you pray tonight, PLEASE thank God for your mother!
"She watches over the ways of her household,
And does not eat the bread of idleness.
Her children rise up and call her blessed;
Her husband also, and he praises her:
Charm is deceitful and beauty is passing,
But a woman who fears the Lord, she shall be praised" (Proverbs 31:27, 28, 30)
