Summary: Are there any godly Mothers left? Is your Mother a praying Mother? What the bible says about Mothers! This is a Mother’s Day sermon.
A Sermon For You
By-Evangelist Gary Huckaby
A mothers arms stretched forth in love,
A mothers heart contains heavens dove.
A mothers song brings such delight,
A mothers kiss last through the night.
I think of a mother so tender and dear,
I smile while thinking of little ones always near.
A mothers love is like a bright shinning light,
To those children who stumble through the darkness of night.
She listens to problems, and suggest a cure,
Because she remembers her problems, and her mothers cure.
I picture a mother who is loved by all,
I picture a mother as one that’s always on call.
I love my dear mother, and I hope you love yours,
Because we only have one, and that is for sure.
"Who can find a virtuous woman? For her price is far above rubies. The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil. She will do him good, and not evil, all the days of her life. She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands. She is like the merchants ships; she bringeth her food from afar. She riseth also while it is yet night; and giveth meat to her household, and a portion to her maidens. She considereth a field, and buyeth it, with the fruit of her hands she planteth a vineyard. She girdeth her loins with strength, and strengtheneth her arms. She perceiveth that her merchandise is good, her candle goeth not out by night. She layeth her hands to the spindle, and her hands hold the distaff. She streacheth out her hand to the poor; she reacheth forth her hands to the needy. She is not afraid of the snow for her household; for all her household are clothed with scarlet. She maketh herself coverings of tapestry; her clothing is silk and purple. Her husband is known in the gates, when he sitteth among the elders of the land. She maketh fine linen, and selleth it, and delivereth girdles unto the merchant. Strength and honor are her clothing, and she shall rejoice in time to come. She openeth her mouth with wisdom, and in her tongue is the law of kindness. She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness. Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her. Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all. Favor is deceitful, and beauty is vain, but a woman who feareth the LORD, she shall be praised. Give her of the fruit of her hands, and let her own works praise her in the gates."
Someone once said; "There is a beauty in homely things, which many never notice. For instance; The sunlight through a jar of apple jelly, A rainbow in the soapsuds, An egg yoke in a blue bowl, white ruffled curtains sifting in the moon light, the smell of freshly baked pie’s."
It has been said that we spend the first part of our lives fighting with our parents, and the second part fighting with our children. Several years ago an authority said that juvenile delinquency was growing seven times faster than child population.
One six year old was heard to say; "mama"s always give in.". How sadly true this sometimes is. Parents giving in to the children instead of giving them training, and discipline. I am going to give you eleven ways for a parent to raise a dud.
1- Let them have their own way, give them their own TV. and telephone.
2- Give them what they want when they whine for it.
3- Pick up after them. Never teach them responsibility.
4- Laugh at them when they are disrespectful.
5- Overlook little deceits, and lies.
6- Let them be selfish and ill mannered.
7- Don’t check on their allowance spending, Let them throw their moneyaway. Let them buy everything that they want, to matter how bad.
8- Let them chatter on and interrupt the conversation of adults.
9- Let them learn immodesty, anger, and profanity from the parents. *This they will never forget.
10-Let them decide whether they want to go to Church or not.
11-Let them hear you criticize and talk about Bible preaching as being senseless.
Do these things and you are sure to raise a dud in humanity.
First, A Mother Should Be A Christian.
To be the mother God intended you to be, you must first be a Christian. I am not talking about being a Church member, nor being a good moral character. While these are good traits, they do not save a person. A Mother should be a woman who has given her heart and soul to Jesus Christ, one who is "born again". Are you a child of God this day?
