THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS


DAILY DEVOTIONS

HI!

I remember announcing my decision to join the service.
Dad said, "Basic training is going to be tuff!"
My three sisters didn't like the decision.

When I looked at Mom, she said,
"Well, NOW you're going to learn how to make your bed every morning!"

Just what IS “the law of thy mother?”

Kindness, gentleness, sharing, caring, selflessness, giving.
It is the law of LOVE!

God says mothers are due respect (Exodus 20:12).
And, “watch your mouth” children!
Because the Bible says,
“God’s curse on anyone who dishonors father or mother...” (Deut. 27:16)

Mothers are leaders in economic affairs.
In Proverbs 31:16, she was to aid her husband in purchase of land.
In Proverbs 31:24, she sold merchandise, made by her hands, for the family.
Lydia was a “seller of purple cloth” (Acts 16:14).

Sometimes mothers are even involved in military affairs.
Deborah was a “wife,” “prophet,” and “judge” (Judges 4:4-8).

But above all, mothers are leaders in religious affairs.
In 2Kings 22:14, the prophetess Huldah was consulted to speak for God to King Josiah.
In 2Timothy 1:5-7, Timothy’s grandmother and mother are held up for him to examine for FAITH!

This “LAW of thy mother” is a wonderful “chain about thy neck”!
Wear it proudly!

And honor your mother!

Love ya!
