Pastor Aries’ Sermon 13, May, 2017

Mothers’ Day is the third most important event, after Easter and Christmas.
Lord Jesus, in pain on the cross, said to Mary, "Behold your son." John 19:25-27
Lord Jesus bothered to think about His mother.
He wanted to ensure she would be taken care of by John.
It is important to take care of mothers, especially when they are old.

Lord Jesus remembered to honor His mother.

Exo 20:12
If we take care of mothers, we can live a long life.
If we are students, we are to obey them.
If we are working, we are to respect them
If we have children, we are to care for mothers.

1.) Mummy, I am sorry.

Mothers feel they have not done enough for the children.
Hence, mothers may overcompensate: to take excessive measure in an attempt to correct or make amends for an error, weakness or problem.

1 Sam 1:1-5
Elkanah knew Hannah wanted children but she was barren.
Hannah felt broken on the inside, hence she could not receive love.
She wanted to be the best wife for Elkanah.
1 Sam 1:6
Elkanah was frustrated with Hannah’s sadness.
He asked her, "What is wrong with you?"
Children often ask their mothers, "What’s wrong with you, Mom? Why are you so controlling?"
However, children misunderstand mothers’ intention. Mothers only want to be the best mothers for their children.

2.) Mummy, I love you.

We are always so busy growing up that we forget our mothers are quickly growing old.
Sometimes, we see mothers as imperfect hence we can’t appreciate them.
We are to honor and respect the position, not just the person.
Rm 13:1
Parents are authorities appointed by God.

Mothers are patient in waiting their backslidden children to return.

3.) Mummy, thank you

Mothers may not be as  smart as their children.
However, mothers have more life experience.
Proverb 23:22
Do not despise old mothers’ experience.
Even if mothers are broken people, their life experience is still valuable. We can learn from them to avoid mistakes.
1 Pet 5:5
Knowledge + life experience.
