First Church Year #17: Mother’s Day
The first Sunday in May is the Sunday that we take to honor our mothers. When I finish this post, I will ask a typical question like I normally do. First, though, a rundown of how our new church recognized mothers.
Many of the youth and kids wrote short sentences about what their mothers meant to them. These were read in front of the entire congregation.
The youth then passed out bits of candy to all of the mothers. These included $100,000 bars and Hershey kisses.
The sermon was about Mary, Jesus’ mother and the Proverbs 31 woman.
Personally, I think there are two points of Christ’s life that typical how we should treat our mothers.
First is when Jesus asks the disciple, John, to take care of mary after His death. Jesus honored his mother by wanting her to be taken care of.
The other is when his family shows up for an intervention. He is told that His mother and brothers and sisters are there. He looks around at those in the house and states that these are his mother and brothers and sisters.
Basically, I think when we look at Christ’s life we learn that we should treasure our mothers. However, all of us who have accepted Him as Savior are in His family now. We should treasure Him above all other relationships.
Did your church do anything special to honor mothers yesterday?
