Sunday will be mother’s day and let’s do something special for them. I am so saddened to see the lack of respect and honor for women and mothers in our culture today. When men fail to fulfill their role that God created them for, that is to love, respect and care for women, this leads to the breakdown of the family and many other problems, (Ephesians 5:25, Colossians 3:19).

God created us with the ability to know Him and love Him and others, (Deuteronomy 6:5). We are to keep ourselves in that Love (Joshua 23:11, Jude 21). God’s word tells us, love your neighbors (James 2:8) love your enemies (Luke 6:27), love parents, (Exodus 20:12). Years ago, I found myself empty and missing something in life and really just having a love for myself.

I realized I had never accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior and I got on my knees and asked Jesus Christ to forgive me of my sins and to come into my heart, immediately a flood of peace and joy and a new kind love came into my heart, (John 1:12, 2 Corinthians 5:17, John 3:16-18). I could love others and especially my wife and family with this new love. I think it is good that we have a special day we honor mothers but I also think we need to treat them special all the time. See You in church next Sunday.
