MAY 8

What Are Your Plans for Mother's Day? 

"Honor thy father and thy mother: that thy days be long upon the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee." Exodus 20:12

The Bible says to "honor your father and your mother," so when we observe Mother's Day or Father's Day, we are obeying the Scripture. You can honor your father and mother three ways: Obey them when you're young, care for them when they are old, and honor them at all times. How do you give them honor?   

¨            Show them respect.  

¨            Express gratefulness. Give them thanks. Learn to develop the attitude of gratitude. Have you thanked your parents for all that they've done? 

¨            Listen to their counsel. 

¨            Show your parents love. Think of what you owe your parents.  They gave you life. I'm convinced that the closest thing to God's love is the love of a mother. 

Why don't you sit down and write a letter to your mother or father and tell them how grateful you are for them?  I'll tell you one thing, they will read it over and over again.  And when they die and you're going through their things, you'll find that letter tucked away in their most treasured possessions.  Do it, rather than saying I wish that I had.  And if your parents are not living, give them honor and thank God for their memory.
