Summary: I owe a debt to many people. God's love? A mother's love? The love of a friend? Recognize the heart of love?
REPAY MY DEBT? GOD WILL MAKE A WAY...
By Wade Martin Hughes, Sr. Kyfingers@aol.com
I have little tiny babys and bottles from Hobby Lobby.
I. THE LOVE OF GOD HAS NO COMPARISON ---
THE CLOSEST WE HAVE IS THE LOVE OF A MOTHER...
A. I am amazed by the LOVE OF GOD...
THE NEXT CLOSEST LOVE TO THE LOVE OF GOD IS THE LOVE OF A MOTHER.
Genesis 3:20 And Adam called his wife's name Eve; because she was the mother of all living.
B. WHY DOES A LITTLE BABY GIRL DRAG HER DOLL BABY AROUND?
We had a friend that's little girl had a BABY ALIVE. It ate baby food and dirtied it's diaper.
The little girl would change the baby's diaper and GAG and GAG.
GOD HAS PLACED MOMMY IN THE HEART OF LITTLE GIRLS.
C. I stood in the jail and watched a 92 year old Mother cry over her son. Sure, he is guilty,
but it is her son.
D. I stood on DEAD ROW and watched a 38 year old man die. I left the DEATH CELL
and returned to a motel room to tell an OLD MOTHER her son was executed, the governor
did not intervene.
E. Come with me down the hall of the rest home.
There is an old lady totally out of REALITY. She knows very little.
But you will she her burping her little baby doll and loving the baby.
If I were a doll, I would want to live in a rest home.
II. GOD NEEDS WOMEN TO SEE BEYOND TODAY...
OFTEN TODAY WE SEE MOTHERS SO WRAPPED UP IN THE PHYSICAL, CARNAL
THAT THEY MISS THE SPIRITUAL, THE ETERNAL...
A. SOME WHERE A WISE MOTHER LEARNS TO TRUST THE VOICE OF GOD...
1 Kings 17:11 And as she was going to fetch it, he called to her, and said, Bring me, I pray
thee, a morsel of bread in thine hand.
12 And she said, As the LORD thy God liveth, I have not a cake, but an handful of meal in a
barrel, and a little oil in a cruse: and, behold, I am gathering two sticks, that I may go in and
dress it for me and my son, that we may eat it, and die.
13 And Elijah said unto her, Fear not; go and do as thou hast said: but make me thereof a little
cake first, and bring it unto me, and after make for thee and for thy son.
B. COUNTRY FOLK UNDERSTAND SEED CORN...
Don't eat the seed corn --- it is NEXT YEARS...
If the seed is not enough for the need, it must BE SEED TO BE SOWN.
III. THE GIFT OF A CHILD?
A MOTHER IN A DYSFUNCTIONAL HOME HAS SO LITTLE HOPE...
NO ONE CAN FIX THIS PROBLEM?
A. A PRAYING MOM CHANGES HISTORY...
1 Samuel 1:15 And Hannah answered and said, No, my lord, I am a woman of a sorrowful spirit:
I have drunk neither wine nor strong drink, but have poured out my soul before the LORD.
B. I GIVE THE GIFT FROM GOD BACK TO GOD?
1 Samuel 1:27 For this child I prayed; and the LORD hath given me my petition which I asked
of him: 28 Therefore also I have lent him to the LORD; as long as he liveth he shall be lent to the
LORD. And he worshipped the LORD there.
IV. HISTORY RECORDS NOT ALL MOTHERS SEE THE CONSEQUENCES OF THEIR CHOICES?
A. A WOMAN WITH LITTLE VISION TRADED HER HOME AND SON AND ALL SHE HAD
FOR AN APPLE?
B. A MOTHER ADVISED HER DAUGHTER TO ASK FOR THE HEAD OF THE PREACHER
WHEN SHE COULD COULD HAVE HAD 1/2 OF THE KINGDOM?
C. REMEMBER LOT'S WIFE?
Luke 17:32 Remember Lot's wife.
V. A PRAYING MOTHER AND A PRAYING WIFE... BEGS
Every Friday evening about sun-set a very old man came walking down the ocean front.
It was a ritual and many learned to expect the man bent over with years. He always seem
to be carrying a heavy old bucket. Hundreds of SEAGULLS would SWARM AROUND THE
OLD MAN. He would reach in the full buck and pull out and cut up a SHRIMP and feed
several of the gulls. More seagulls would come, and he would keep reaching in the bucket
and feeding the SEAGULLS. It seemed the SEAGULLS were friends with the old man.
And every Friday night the SEAGULLS would surround the old man and the sound was so
loud. It was a sight to behold.
A person watched this two weeks in a row and when up to the man and said may I enquire
who you are and why are you wasting your money on these STUPID SEAGULLS?
The old man introduced himself and said:
