M & M's of Godly Motherhood

Proverbs 31:10-31

This morning we honor our mothers. Where would we be without them? We wouldn't! : ) Mothers are special. They come in all shapes and sizes, but they are all similar. My mother used to call herself a 'mean mother'. She loved the poem written by Bobbie Pinagro. Let me read a portion of that poem.

I found a couple of things about moms that I want to share with you this morning. How can you tell if you are a 'real mother'?

Real Mothers. . . .

Top Ten Momisms:

Moms are special people. Every once in a while I will see on a card or plaque, "God couldn't be everywhere all the time, so He made mothers." Well, that is wrong theology, but a correct sentiment! God can be everywhere at the same time, because He is God…but He established the family! Eve was called 'Eve' because her name means the 'life giver'.

There are many things that we could say about mothers in general, but let me turn your attention to our text this morning and talk about the M & M's of Godly Motherhood.

I. Mothers are Most-Valuable. v10

II. Mothers are Magnanimous. v11-12

III. Mothers are Multi-faceted. v13-14

IV. Mothers are Managers. v16

V. Mothers are Mighty. v17

VI. Mothers are Merciful. v20

VII. Mothers are Models. v25

VIII. Mothers are Mentors. v26

IX. Mothers are Memorable. v28

Stand with me please. We have laughed today, and maybe even a few tears have come to our eyes this morning. But please don't miss the importance of this time today. This is a time for mothers, fathers, and children to consider their testimony. Do you know Jesus Christ as your personal Saviour? If not, why not come today and receive Him? Have we properly honoured our mothers this day? Perhaps your relationship isn't what it should be; why not determine to do something about it this morning? Come today whatever the need.
