A teacher gave her class of second graders a lesson on the magnet and what it does. The next day in a written test, she included this question: “My full name has six letters. The first one is M, and I pick up things. What am I?” When the grades were all in the teacher was astounded to find that almost fifty percent had written in, mother.
Two young children on mother’s day presented their mom with a houseplant. The older of the children said with a sad face, “There was a bouquet we wanted to give you at the flower shop. It was really pretty, but it was too expensive. It had a ribbon on it that said, ‘Rest in Peace,’ and we thought you would like it since your always asking for a little peace so you can rest.”
Speaking of Gifts, How many mothers have already gotten your gifts today? How many expect to get them sometime next week, as soon as he remembers? I came across this cute little note one husband had written to his wife on mother’s day. M is for the mink coat you want, dear, O is for the opal ring you crave, T is for the tiny car, you’d love, H is for the hat that makes you rave, E is for the earrings you’d admire, love, R is for the rug on which you’d tread; Put them all together, they’d spell bankrupt, so I’m giving you this handkerchief instead.
Mother’s day is one of the days of the year is which we honor our mother’s and try to give back to them our thanks, by doing some of the selfless, often thankless jobs that they do throughout the year. So our topic for the day will be to help remind mother’s why they do those selfless, thankless jobs year round. What I would like for you to see, is that when mother’s become selfless, and think first of their child or children’s welfare, not only does the child benefit, but the mother as well. I have two different texts for you today, so if you would like to follow along turn in your Bibles to Exodus chapter two, starting with verse two and ending with verse ten.
This is the story of Moses’ birth. Let’s quickly glance over the text. In verse two, we see that she became pregnant and gave birth to a son. When she saw that he was a find child, she hid him for three months. We see from Exodus 6:20 that Moses father was named Amram, and his mother Jochebed. Pharaoh had previously ordered all male babies born be thrown into the river. So, when she could hide him no longer she placed him in a basket and placed it among the reeds. Where Pharaoh’s daughter found him and they all lived happily ever after. NO! I don’t think the story lays out as simple as that, there are a lot of factors that we haven’t taken into consideration. Let’s look at the story more closely and see if we can’t pick up on some of the clues. Again, verse two tells us that Jochebed saw that he was a fine child, and hid him for three months. Those of you that have had children know that after three months of being with a baby you are fully bonded with that child. So she didn’t just stroll down by the river one-day and say, there ya go wish ya luck. Again no. I fully think that Jochebed had a plan. First of all she probably thought what could I do to keep my son safe from this order from Pharaoh. She said I’ve either have to send him somewhere, or get him under protective care. Secondly, I think she knew where Pharaoh’s daughter regularly bathed. So you see she
