Since there are a large amount of sermons and topics and illustrations that are posted on Sermon Central, I feel it is necessary to place this disclaimer on all of the sermons that I submit.
These sermons are original to the author and the leading of the Holy Spirit.
While ideas and illustrations are often obtained from many sources including those at sermoncentral.com, any similarities and wording including sermon titles, that may appear to be the same as any other sermon are purely coincidental.
In instances where other minister’s exact wording is used, due recognition will be given.
These sermons are not copyrighted and may be used or preached freely.
May God richly bless you as you read these sermons.
It is my sincere desire that all who read them and hear them may be lifted up to a higher relationship with God.
Most of the scriptures quoted in these sermons are copies and quoted from the New Living Translation of the Holy Bible.
I do at times use scripture from several different versions of the Bible such as NIV, New King James Version, King James Version etc.
Any and all ministers may freely use any of my sermons and post them anywhere that they want to.
After all, it is God’s Word and not our own!

MOM, YOU ARE NUMBER ONE!
May 13 2007 – Mothers Day
A mother walked into her young son’s bedroom just in time to hear him begin his nighttime prayers.
He said, “Andy, please forgive me for what I did wrong today, and Andy, please keep my mommy and daddy safe.”
After he had finished, she asked him who Andy was.
He told her that was God’s name.
She asked him how he knew that, and he said that in church they sang to Andy.
They would sing, “Andy walks with me – Andy talks to me.”
Today is Mother’s Day.
It is the day we men honor our mothers and the mothers of our children.
My mother is gone now, and all I have left are memories of her.
Out of all those memories, the one that sticks out the most is that she was a devout Christian lady who raised my brother Earl, my sister Margaret and myself to be Christian’s.
For that, I will forever be grateful TO her and FOR her.
My mom was a very special lady who taught me many things.
She taught me how to never give up.
She would say, “You’ll sit there until your food is all gone or until you are covered with cobwebs!”
She taught me about the sanctity of life.
She would say, “I brought you into this world, and I can take you out, too!”
In all seriousness, my mom was a great mom and it is mostly because of her that I am who I am today.
And I thank God that she loved us kids enough to teach us the many things she did.
Today is the one day of the year that men will generally go out and buy a gift without being prompted to.
My suggestion is for you to buy her something that is only for her, and that will show her you are thinking only about her happiness.
If you follow that rule, then whatever you get her will be appreciated and loved.
As far as a woman goes, becoming a mother changes things, doesn’t it?
And, becoming a mother more than once changes things even more.
When a woman becomes pregnant for the first time, she will start wearing maternity clothes the day the doctor says she is pregnant.
On her second pregnancy, she will wear her normal clothes for as long as she can, and by her third or fourth pregnancy, she will wear anything because she doesn’t have any more money to go out and buy any new clothes.
We all know that mothers are many things to their children, don’t we?
Mothers are our first teachers in life and our most compassionate nurses.
We have all heard the expression that it takes a Mother to raise a child.
Today, more than ever before, babysitters and nurseries are raising our children.
The tragedy in that is more and more children are being taught outside the home, and what they are taught is most-often worldly rather than Godly.
Here are some of the things our small children are learning today.
They learn the world’s morality
‘If it feels right, it is right.’
They learn Humanism
‘God doesn’t exist and we are capable of taking care of ourselves’
They learn that man descended from apes – ‘My question is this; if man descended from apes, why are there still apes?
We live in the society Jeremiah spoke of.
A society that “does not know how to blush.”
