Happy Mother’s Day

Exodus 20 12.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Exodus 20:12

Honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the Lord your God is giving you.

 

If you are blessed to have your mother in your life, honor her as the Lord commands.  Be devoted and respectful, affectionate and loving for she won’t always be here.  If there are grievances between you, ask God to help you forgive each other.  If you are blessed to be a mother, pray that you would be a good example for your children and that they would honor you in the same way you have honored your own mother.

Love Forgives

Colossians 3 13

 

Verse of the Day:  Colossians 3:13

Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.

 

In all our relationships, whether it’s with a friend, family member or spouse at some point one of us may do something to make the other angry or hurt each other’s feelings.  We’re not perfect and we make mistakes.  It may be something small or something really big, either way it’s how we handle these offenses that determines how the relationship will proceed.   It takes genuine forgiveness to make a relationship work and survive. God has forgiven us of all our sins both big and small and He expects us to forgive others as well.
