- How do you honor your mother?
- In what ways have you "turned into your mother?"
Reading: Proverbs 31: 10-31
Today, we celebrate Mother’s Day. It is a day when we remember all the things our mothers do for us and honor them with flowers, candies, or a nice dinner.
Your mother is like your mirror. Someone once made that statement which I thought was pretty profound. If you look at yourself, you will probably see a lot of your mother in you. I know I do.
When I was in my late 20s, I realized that I was turning into my parents. I realized that I had many of the same interests as they did and I acted like they did. Don’t get me wrong—that is not a bad thing. It was just a realization that indeed I had turned into my parents. Most of you probably had a similar realization at some time during your life as well.
As we celebrate the special day in May set aside for our moms, remember that one of the most important things they do for us is be prayer-givers. They are worriers about their children and are constantly praying for their our well-being. They would do anything for you and love you no matter what. Sounds a little like our heavenly parent, huh?
I hope you take time out on the second Sunday of May to remember the women in your life who have been the most mother-like to you. And maybe this year we all can work to remember and thank them not just on Mother’s Day! --Chad Hershberger, Camp Mount Luther Director
Closing: Pray for all mothers.
