TEXT: Ephesians 6:1-3

Sunday Evening Evangelistic Message #118

The Bible commands us to honor our fathers and our mothers. And, today, on this Mother's Day, we are going to honor those whom God has placed in our lives as mothers. Some of the greatest leaders this world has ever known attributed their success to the prayers and loving care of their mothers.

Abraham Lincoln said, "I remember my mother’s prayers and they have always followed me. They have clung to me all my life."

Charles Spurgeon said, "I cannot tell you how much I owe to the solemn word of my good mother."

George Washington said, "My mother was the most beautiful woman I ever saw. All I am I owe to my mother. I attribute all my success in life to the moral, intellectual and physical education I received from her."

Today, we want to honor and thank God for those good mothers in our lives, but before we get to that, I want to talk briefly about bad mothers. Part of the problem in many churches today is that pastors feel as though it alright for them to rebuke fathers and husbands from the pulpit, and it is okay to get on the children and teenagers from the pulpit, but nobody wants to rebuke the wives and mothers from the pulpit. Everybody is afraid of stepping on the women's toes. The church has bought in to the world's lie that, "if momma ain't happy, ain't nobody happy." But the truth of the matter is that there are some bad wives and mothers in this world and yes even in the church, and it is an issue that needs to be dealt with.
