What two Presidents said about their mothers:
Honor thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee. Exodus 20:12
Abraham Lincoln once said, “All that I am or ever hope to be, I owe to my angel mother.” This time every year we celebrate our mothers. Oh, the power of a mother’s love!
I spoke with the former President of the United States, George H. W. Bush, about his salvation and personal relationship with Christ and prayed with him about that. He looked me in the eyes and said, “I want to tell you, my mother was the most godly person I have ever known.” He then went on to tell me about her influence in his life.
John and Charles Wesley, out of whose hearts and minds came the Methodist church, had a mother named Susanna, who raised those children for Jesus Christ and gave them a passion for God.
Do you know what children need? A – B – C:
Thank God for magnificent mothers!
If your mother is still alive, honor her this weekend. Tell her that you love her and appreciate the sacrifices she made for you. If she is no longer with you, the best way you can honor her is to live a life that brings honor to the Lord Jesus Christ.
