Honor Your Mother - Monday's Dose - 29th May 2017

"Pharaoh commanded all his people, saying, `Every son who is born you are to cast into the Nile, and every daughter you are to keep alive'…The woman conceived and bore a son…she hid him for three months. But when she could hide him no longer, she got him a wicker basket and covered it over with tar and pitch. Then she put the child into it and set it among the reeds by the bank of the Nile." - Exodus 1:22-2:3 NASB.

Thoughts for Today

Moses became the deliverer of God's chosen people. But his important role wouldn't have been possible if it hadn't been for the courage and commitment of his mother. She risked her own life, determined to protect her son, even though Pharaoh had ordered every newborn boy to be drowned.

This woman is typical of so many mothers throughout history—women who brought their children into the world, then bathed, nurtured, and cared for them while they were helpless infants…women who sacrificed so their children could have food and clothing…women who worked two jobs so their children could be educated.

Many men and women have recognized how much they owe to their mothers. Yet, sadly, many others have neglected to have an attitude of thankfulness and gratitude. How many mothers have been taken for granted!

Today is a day to honor our mothers and show them our gratitude. This also is a day for husbands to extend gratitude to their wives.

Ask God to bless your mother (and/or your wife). If you are a husband, realize all that your wife means to you, and show her your thanks and appreciation.

If your mother is still alive, let her know how much you appreciate all she's done for you. Be grateful and thankful. Pray for her, and don't take her for granted!

Prayer: Our Loving Heavenly Father, thank You for my mother and all that she's done for me. Help me to be a grateful person who gladly shows my appreciation. Thank You. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen."

Have a Blessed Monday and God Bless you.
