Abraham Lincoln once said, “All I am or hope to be, I owe to my angel mother.”  Whether this is the case for you and your family or not, moms are to be honored. Moms come with all different personalities and temperaments. They will never be perfect but God has worked through them to bring you into this world.



Solomon the wise encourages us make our moms glad by the way we live and relate to them. Have you ever thought much about bringing joy to your mom? Diapers and sleepless nights are never much fun but she has endured all that to raise you. According to salary.com, moms should earn a salary of $115,000 per year.

So how do you honor and help moms? Here are some ideas. 1. Serve them. So often, moms work and serve the family tirelessly. They deserve a break and will respond well when family and others take the time to serve them. 2. Obey and listen to them. Holy scripture makes it clear that obedience will come with a blessing. (See Eph. 6:1-3 ). Listening and heeding their instruction will also ‘serve you well’. They are out for your best. 3. Give them a day off. Have you ever tried this? You’d be surprised at the response! 4. Share with them how they have blessed your life. Gratefulness goes a long way! 5. Value them highly. God has placed them in your lives for a reason.

Happy Mother’s Day Moms! Enjoy!
