My mother made certain that I studied my Sunday School lesson on Saturday evenings. She saw to it that I made each choir practice and dressed in starched shirt and pants, and a jacket and tie on Sundays. She made sure that she communicated with the public school teachers and school officials so that I comported myself properly and she went over my report card with a fine-toothed comb wanting to know why certain grades were not up where she thought they should be. My mother doctored every fever, ache and ailment with the remedies her mother had taught her. As you can see from the partial list I just made, I most definitely was not neglected. Thanks mother! ”Honour thy father and mother; which is the first commandment with promise;” (Eph.6:2, KJV)
Have you watched the news lately? There seem to be squabbles and disagreement at every level of government, between nations, races and economic strata. There must be a place where men and women, boys and girls can go and experience the opposite of the stress of such an atmosphere. May your home be a place of agreement, where squabbles and disagreement can’t find dwelling places. May it be the place of “where two or three are gathered in my Name” (Matt.18:20) becomes the place of “all things are possible” (Mk.9:23). (Ps.128:3, GNB) “Your wife will be like a fruitful vine in your home, and your children will be like young olive trees around your table.” We are praying you discover daily that your home is a place of productive agreement.

Your Home #29—May your home be a place of honor where each family member honors the other. May your home be a place where honor of others outside your family is spoken of. May your home be a place where honor is not just taught but caught and practiced.
“Give everyone what you owe them. If you owe them any kind of tax, then pay it. Show respect to those you should respect. And show honor to those you should honor.”

As the people of God assemble today, may they encourage and honor the mothers who have stood lovingly and faithfully with their children and bless the mothers who have raised their children in the way that they should go so that their lives might be blessed by the truths of the Word of God. May they stand firm in the foundation their godly mothers have left them.
“when I call to remembrance the genuine faith that is in you, which dwelt first in your grandmother Lois and your mother Eunice, and I am persuaded is in you also.” (2Tim.1:5, NKJV)
