There were 8 children in the family.
Dad worked hard, and was very quiet-spoken.
The children were concerned because Dad hardly ever
showed appreciation for Mom keeping the small house
so well. Their concern was that he didn't respect her.
On afternoon, Mom had gone to the store.
She stopped on the way back to help a neighbor who
had a sick child.
When Dad came home, all the kids were in the
living room, doing homework.
He looked into the living room, and looked at each
Then he said, “Where is everybody?”

There were TWO tablets of stone on which God wrote the
The first tablet (commands 1-4) were about man's
relationship with God.
The second tablet (commands 5-10) were about man's

The FIRST commandment on the second tablet was this:
The writer of Proverbs reflects the seriousness of
that commandment (see text above Prov. 1:8-9).
Moses also reflected the seriousness of that command
in Deut. 27:16.

Sometimes, mothers were involved in military affairs.

"The law of thy mother" is a wonderful ornamental
"chain about thy neck!!"
Wear it PROUDLY!!
And HONOR thy MOTHER!
