Acknowledge all mothers and pray over them.

“History shows almost all the greatest leaders that lived, indeed had mothers!”

PAUL REVERE’S MOTHER: "I don’t care where you think you have to go, young man. Midnight is past your curfew!"

MARY, MARY, QUITE CONTRARY’S MOTHER: "I don’t mind you having a garden, Mary, but does it have to be growing under your bed?"

MONA LISA’S MOTHER: "After all that money your father and I spent on

braces, Mona, that’s the biggest smile you can give us?"

HUMPTY DUMPTY’S MOTHER: "Humpty, If I’ve told you once, I’ve told you a hundred times not to sit on that wall. But would you listen to me? Noooo!"

COLUMBUS’ MOTHER: "I don’t care what you’ve discovered, Christopher. You still could have written!"

BABE RUTH’S MOTHER: "Babe, how many times have I told you -- quit

playing ball in the house! That’s the third broken window this week!"

MICHELANGELO’S MOTHER: "Mike, can’t you paint on walls like other

children? Do you have any idea how hard it is to get that stuff off the ceiling?"

NAPOLEON’S MOTHER: "All right, Napoleon. If you aren’t hiding your report card inside your jacket, then take your hand out of there and prove it!"

ABRAHAM LINCOLN’S MOTHER: "Again with the stovepipe hat, Abe? Can’t you just wear a baseball cap like the other kids?"

BARNEY’S MOTHER: "I realize strained plums are your favorite, Barney, but you’re starting to look a little purple."

MARY’S MOTHER: "I’m not upset that your lamb followed you to school, Mary, but I would like to know how he got a better grade than you."

BATMAN’S MOTHER: "It’s a nice car, Bruce, but do you realize how much the insurance is going to be?"

GOLDILOCKS’ MOTHER: "I’ve got a bill here for a busted chair from the Bear family. You know anything about this, Goldie?"

LITTLE MISS MUFFET’S MOTHER: "Well, all I’ve got to say is if you don’t get off your tuffet and start cleaning your room, there’ll be a lot more spiders around here!"

ALBERT EINSTEIN’S MOTHER: "But, Albert, it’s your senior picture. Can’t you do something about your hair? Styling gel, mousse, something...?"

JONAH’S MOTHER: "That’s a nice story, but now tell me where you’ve

really been for the last three days."

SUPERMAN’S MOTHER: "Clark, your father and I have discussed it, and

we’ve decided you can have your own telephone line. Now will you quit

spending so much time in all those phone booths?"

THOMAS EDISON’S MOTHER: "Of course I’m proud that you invented the electric light bulb, Thomas. Now turn off that light and get to bed!"

Every lady has the seed of a mother inside, some feed and water it, some try to destroy it. It is not wrong for a lady to work, or do any number of things, but let’s not begin to think that those things are more valuable than motherhood. If you don’t have any children to mother, find some!

· Some ladies are parents but they do not have a “mother’s heart.”

· Some ladies have a “mother’s heart” but are not a parent.

[Isaiah 49:15] Can a mother forget her nursing child? Can she feel no love for a child she has borne? But even if that were possible, I would not forget you!

“The commonest fallacy among women is that simply having children makes one a mother-which is as absurd as believing that having a piano makes one a musician.”

[Romans 16:13] Greet Rufus, whom the Lord picked out to be his very own; and also his dear mother, who has been a mother to me.

What does it take to be a mother?

[1 Corinthians 13:4-7] Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud {5} or rude. Love does not demand its own way. Love is not irritable, and it keeps no record of when it has been wronged. {6} It is never glad about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. {7} Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.

Moms never give up!

[2 Kings 4:15-17] "Call her back again," Elisha told him. When the woman returned, Elisha said to her as she stood in the doorway, {16} "Next year at about this time you will be holding a son in your arms!" "No, my lord!" she protested. "Please don’t lie to me like that, O man of God." {17} But sure enough, the woman soon became pregnant. And at that time the following year she had a son, just as Elisha had said.

[2 Kings 4:25-30] As she approached the man of God at Mount Carmel, Elisha saw her in the distance. He said to Gehazi, "Look, the woman from Shunem is coming. {26} Run out to meet her and ask her, ’Is everything all right with you, with your husband, and with your child?’" "Yes," the woman told Gehazi, "everything is fine." {27} But when she came to the man of God at the mountain, she fell to the ground before him and caught hold of his feet. Gehazi began to push her away, but the man of God said, "Leave her alone. Something is troubling her deeply, and the LORD has not told me what it is." {28} Then she said, "It was you, my lord, who said I would have a son. And didn’t I tell you not to raise my hopes?" {29} Then Elisha said to Gehazi, "Get ready to travel; take my staff and go! Don’t talk to anyone along the way. Go quickly and lay the staff on the child’s face." {30} But the boy’s mother said, "As surely as the LORD lives and you yourself live, I won’t go home unless you go with me." So Elisha returned with her.
