For You To Think About

Little girl prayingThroughout scripture, God tells us to honor our parents.

The word “honor” translated from the biblical command means “to glorify,” “to make weighty,” or “to promote.” In other words, to honor your mother to means to show her that her life counts.

Your upbringing may have been carefree … or miserable … or anything in between. Regardless, you are reading this today because a woman chose to carry her pregnancy to term and give you life.

Make sure you thank her for making that choice.

A short word of thanks, a brief prayer, a phone call: it doesn’t matter how you do it, but honor your mom for choosing life.

And you’ll encourage other pregnant women, too.

For You To Pray

Loving Father,
Help us to honor our mothers and thank them for choosing life.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
