Mother’s Day 2015

Text: Exodus 2:1 – 11

Before we get to our text this morning, I want to tell you little story since its Mother’s Day. It starts out one afternoon when a man came home from work. As he drove up and parked his truck in the driveway he noticed his 3 kids, ages 6, 4, and 3 were all outside playing in the mud and there were a couple of empty cereal boxes and candy wrappers strewn all over the yard. The front door to the house was open and so were the doors to his wife’s car. Walking into the house the man found an even bigger mess. A lamp had been knocked over, the TV was blaring out some cartoon show. A pile of sugar was in his recliner and the family dog was foaming at the mouth, running around in circles (obviously it had been licking the sugar). There were dirty clothes scattered all over the living room and his kids toys were as well. In the kitchen dishes filled the sink and a broken pitcher that had probably once contained Kool-Aid was all over the floor. The refrigerator door was wide open and it looked like the dog had also probably drug out several items include at least a dozen eggs. The man was really getting worried now. Had something happened to his wife? He quickly ran up the stairs, stepping over more toys and piles of clothes and opened up the bed room door. There he saw his wife, curled up in bed, still in her pajamas, reading her favorite book. She looked up and smiled at him and asked him how his day was. He looked at her totally confused and said, “What in the heck happened here today?” She smiled again and answered, “Well, you know how ever day when you come home from work and ask me what in the world I did all day? Well today I didn’t do it.”

I truly believe, with all my heart, that mothers are one of the most important roles in all earth. George Washington, our 1st President said this about his mother – “All I am, I owe to my mother. I attribute all my success in this life to the moral, intellectual and physical education I received from her.” Our 16th President Abraham Lincoln said – “I remember my mother’s prayers and they have always followed me. They have clung to me all my life. All that I am or ever hope to be, I owe to my angel mother.” Our 25th President (and distant relative) William McKinley said, ““By the blessings of heaven I mean to live, die and in all things please God, in the faith of my mother.” The great preacher, Charles Haddon Spurgeon once said, “I cannot begin to tell how much I owe to the solemn word of my good mother. All the books of the world could not contain her godly influence upon me.” And John Calvin said this – “The noblest calling in the world is that of mother. She who rears a family of God fearing sons and daughters whose immortal souls will be exerting influence throughout the ages… long after paintings have faded and books have worn thin, deserves the highest honor that men can give.”
