OPEN HEAVENS DAILY DEVOTIONAL

DATE: SUNDAY 10TH MAY 2020.

THEME: HONOR YOUR MOTHER.

MEMORISE:

A wise son maketh a glad father: but a foolish man despiseth his mother. Proverb 15:20

READ: Proverb 1:8-9

8 My son, hear the instruction of thy father, and forsake not the law of thy mother:

9 For they shall be an ornament of grace unto thy head, and chains about thy neck.

MESSAGE

It is quite sad that many people honor their fathers but have little or no respect for their mothers. People tend to disrespect their mothers because they are soft and readily accessible, whereas the fathers are tough and usually unavailable. It is however foolish not to honor your mother. Ephesians 6:2 does not only say you should honor your father so you can live long, it asks you to honor your mother too. If you only honour your *father^ and not your mother, then you are toying with untimely death. Mothers labor greatly over their children, so you can imagine how they feel when you esteem them lightly.

According to our memory verse for today, the Bible puts the man who says that there is no God in the *same* category as the man who despises his mother they are both fools. This is how grievous it is to despise your mother. If your mother is happy with you, you are already in for a great life. Moses’ mother arranged for him to be raised in the palace and it was there that he got on the path of greatness. Many people have missed their greatness because they despised their mother and her advice.

My son, keep thy father’s commandment, and forsake not the law of thy mother: Proverbs 6:20

Your mother has a very important role to play in your journey to greatness; you must never despise her! I am where I am today because of the prayers of my mother. Whenever I did something to please her, I recall she would say whenever I call one, many would respond to me. Those prayers have manifested in my life today.

As powerful as Jesus was, He never despised His mother. He performed a miracle at His mother’s request, even though His time of manifestation was not yet fully come (John 2:3-12), simply because He could not disobey her. Can your mother say the same about you?

ACTION POINT:

If you have been despising your mother, change your attitude to her henceforth. Today, do something to show her that you love and honor her.

Homes where the mother, in caring quest,
Strives to show others Your way is best,
Homes where the Lord is an honored guest;

God give us Christian homes!

4. God give us Christian homes!
Homes where the children are led to know
Christ in His beauty who loves them so,
Homes where the altar fires burn and glow;
