The Gift Your Mom Really Wants


The father of the righteous will greatly rejoice, and he who begets a wise child will delight in him. Let your father and your mother be glad, and let her who bore you rejoice. Proverbs 23:24-25.

Children are an extension of their parents.  When children do something good and godly and worthy, that gives a parent such great joy. Third John 1:4 says, “I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth.”

Before my parents went to heaven, one of the greatest joys of my life was to do something that would cause them to rejoice and say, “Adrian, we're proud of you.”  I’m so grateful for that.

Reflect upon how you are living today.  Does your life honor God and give your parents joy? Does it gladden the heart of God? Live in such a way as to cause your parents to stick out their chest a little bit—not in a prideful way, but in saying, “Thank God for my children.”  Your mother will have no greater joy than to know that you are walking in the truth.
