Sunday, May 13, is Mothers Day, a day that has been set aside to honor mothers everywhere. Mothers have been given a very special and unique privilege by God---to raise up godly children who will come to know God in a personal way and pass on that spiritual heritage down through the generations to their children and their children's children.

Mothers have a huge impact on her family in ways that cannot be numbered or described. Her faithfulness in loving her children and wanting the best for them never ends. If and when that love and communication between mother and child is weakened or destroyed, the impact is catastrophic at best.

Mothers who follow God's design are most blessed indeed. He has given special instructions to mothers to "train up a child in the way he should go", and God's promise is that the child "will not depart from it." Every child needs a mother who follows God's design and loves God first. Her love for God will be passed down to her children by her example, her lifestyle, and her actions. She will be faithful to pray for her children, to want the best for them, to discipline them in ways that their lives will bring honor to God and to humanity, and to nourish their spiritual souls. When a mother serves God first, God will honor that commitment and bless her with children who will honor Him in their future endeavors. Every child needs a mother who will surrender her children to God, and allow Him to bring about His perfect will in their lives.

Children are also given the command to "honor your father and mother." This Mother's Day think of how your mother has impacted your life down through the years. Think of the sacrifice she had made on your behalf, the love that was always there no matter what the circumstance, and the years of dedication she gave to make your life more meaningful. The best way to honor her is by living your life in line with God's principles and growing spiritually stronger as a lifestyle.

Proverbs 23:25b: "May your father and mother be glad; may she who gave you birth rejoice!"

Honor your mothers by being who God wants you to be!
