A Mother’s Day Tribute

What is the best way to celebrate Mother’s Day? By living out an honor to your Mother every day. Proverbs tells us how.


Proverbs 23:22: “Do not despise your mother when she is old.”

Why say this?

1. She needs you instead of you needing her.

  1. Role reversal
  2. She has invested in you
  3. She needs to be needed
  4. Repay the love

2. You don’t always know the sacrifice

3. Age sharpens idiosyncrasies. You have yours.

4. Maturity (yours) means doing things your own way

  1. Different from Mama’s
  2. She did things differently from her mother

5. Her faults may appear larger

  1. She’s human
  2. Forgive and love

6. Her failures from past years may seem to overshadow the good.
Focus on the good.

7. She may seem old-fashioned in a modern world. “You won’t
always be ‘cutting edge.'”

8. She still has strongly-held beliefs and opinions

  1. She (hopefully) has tried to have her ideas based on the Word
  2. She may be right

Remember: YOU ONLY HAVE ONE MOTHER
