Finally, the angel bent over and ran her finger across the cheek of the mother. "There’s a leak," she pronounced, "I told you that you were trying to put too much in this model."

"That’s not a leak," said the Lord, "it’s a tear."

"What is it for?" asked the angel.

The Lord replied, "It’s for joy, sadness, disappointment, pain, loneliness and pride."

"You’re a genius!" shouted the angel.

With a somber look on his face, the Lord said, "I didn’t put it there."

How about a hand now for the crowning jewel of God’s creation: our mothers!

Lord, help us never to be too busy for mom…if you could take time and great effort for her on the cross in your death, help us to love her while we have her in our life!

Pastor Jerry has reminded all of us the great love of Mothers and how to return a portion of that love to her. Thank you Pastor Jerry.

Pastor Jerry, Thank you so much for reminding us in the right sense the unconditional love of our mothers to us and how we should love them even though we can''t repay them to the same extent. Spirit filled love sermon. God bless your ministry.

Hmm, I just got an e-mail saying, "A comment has been added to a discussion on 7 Ways to Love Your Mother." It contained a spirited response to the constructive critique I left last year regarding Bro. Jerry''s Mother''s Day message. My post is missing and so is this fellow''s response. I know I wasn''t caustic or abraisive in my critique, although the fellow''s response was personally condemnatory toward me. I didn''t realize that only positive affirmations of sermons are permitted. Sorry.

This sermon has really taking my heart, just to know how much that Jesus our Lord loved his mother, like wise we all should be the same way. Love our mother we dont have but one thanks for this powerful message and God bless you.
