TRIBUTE TO MOTHERS
 
“A women who fears the Lord is to be praised. Her children arise and call her blessed. Her husband also, and he praises her.” Proverbs 3:30b, 28

This passage gives the foundation for our tribute to mothers on this Mother’s Day Celebration. The writer of Proverbs said, “She is to be praised.” Mothers do so much for us. We want to take a moment to honor them today. They are the first carriers of life. They nurtured us at a very early age. I believe it was Abraham Lincoln who once said, “Every thing I am and hope to be, I owe it to my mother.” They are our first teachers. They pour themselves into us and we become what they taught us to be.
 
We honor our God fearing mothers today because they are worthy. Not only have they given us our first start in life, they have given the foundation for our faith in Jesus Christ. We learned about God from them and they have planted the seeds for future growth. This is what Paul had to say about Timothy’s mother and grandmother. “ I am reminded of your faith which first lived in your grandmother, Lois and in your mother, Eunice and, I am persuaded, now lives in you also (2Tim. 1:5).So we honor our mothers today because of their faith.
 
We thank God for our mothers and we thank our mothers for all they have done for us. “Thank you mothers for your love.” “Thank you for your encouragement.” “Thank you for your support.” “Thank you for your corrections.” “Thank you for the faith that you have passed down to us.” This is our tribute to mothers on this Mother’s Day!
 
We want our honor to be more than words, so we say to our mothers, “We stand ready to minister to your needs, with the full knowledge that we can never repay you for your kindness to us. To God be the glory!”
