Thank you, Mom! A Mother's Day Tribute

Pastor Jeremy Wiersema, Reformed Church of Steen

As most of you know, Sunday is Mother’s Day.
I am grateful that God created moms. He did that in the very beginning time. He told Adam and Eve, the first two people created and the first married couple, to be fruitful and multiply. In other words, be a dad and mom. Parents are therefore a divine creation.
Most moms are special to their children, but a mom who loves the Lord is a blessing to the world.
In Proverbs 31:10-31 we read about a woman who fears the Lord. Listed in these verses are the ways moms serve.
Here are a few. She brings good, not harm and she works with eager hands. She gathers the food needed to feed her family. She runs the family business efficiently, and ministers to those who have need. She speaks with wisdom, and faithful instruction is on her tongue.
It is easy to see in Proverbs 31 that God sees and understands that moms are busy people. Proverbs 31 also declares a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.
Thank You, Moms! Thank you for always putting your children first. Thank you for all the important but often unnoticed things which you do every day to make our lives easier.
Thank you for your sacrifice, and thank you for getting us up every Sunday to go to church.
Thank you for reading us devotions, and thank you for teaching us to love Jesus.
Thank you for being there when we are sad, hurt, or confused.
Thank you for dropping everything you are doing to come and help us with our problems.
Thank you, Mom, for every one of your sacrifices. As your children, we hope that we can follow in your footsteps of love and service.
