Make Time for Your Mother


Yes, we know that we celebrate Mother’s Day the second Sunday in May, but what about the other three hundred and sixty-four days of the year? Did you not know your blessings are in your mother?

First, I would like to say that there are so many of us who do have the opportunity to bless our mothers because she is gone, yet we still honor her and represent her by the way we live. We honor her teaching and instructions by obeying them. No matter what your circumstances are with your mother, God gave her the assignment to bring you into this world. You are here!!! You made it. Now what are going to do with the life we’re given?

The first commandment with a promise to it is, “Honor your mother and father that your days may be long upon the land which the Lord that God gives thee” (Ex.20:12). That’s the old testament now the new. “Honor thy father and mother; which is the first commandment with promise; That it may be well with you, and you may live long on the earth.” (Eph. 6:2-3). WOW!!! What a promise from God’s word.

Now I will not say much because the word of God has already been spoken. A couple points I will note:

  • The first thing to seek for a long life is the honor and care of your father and mother. Today our focus is mom.
  • If you want things to go well with you and be in your favor, honor and care for your mom.
  • Ladies, if you want a man to honor and respect you, watch how he cares for his mother.
  • If he does not care for his mother, don’t be disappointed if he doesn’t care for you.
  • The honor and care for mother’s is so important that Jesus stopped dying on the cross to leave his mother in good hands. He left her in the hands of John, the discipline of love. (John 19:26-27)

So, love and honor your mother while you have a chance. Whatever you do is being passed down to the next generation. It doesn’t matter what was done to you. Pray and forgive. Take the short end of the stick. God will increase it. Yes, your blessings come through honoring your mother the other three hundred and sixty-four days of the year. Although I did everything I could for my mother, how I love to have one more day.

So, stop being too busy. Take time to show love every day. It’s not about gifts, she rather have your time. Make time for mom. Take her on a date occasionally. By blessings and honoring her, your blessings are on the way. Do it from your heart, expecting to receive nothing. Be kind, gentle and compassionate. Yes, Take Time for Your Mother.
