TEXT: PSALM 128:1-6

MEMORY VERSE: “Thy wife shall be as a fruitful vine by the sides of thine house: thy children like olive plants round about thy table” (PSALM 128:3).

In 1952, when Korea was in the throes of civil war, a young pregnant woman who was due to be delivered of a child, asked for help from passersby, and no one could help her. She heard of a missionary living nearby who could render help. She then decided to go there even though it was a period of cold and snow.

On her way, the pain became unbearable, and the baby was already coming out. She took shelter under a bridge and gave birth to a baby boy on Christmas day. She took off her clothes, wrapped the baby and held him close in her arms.

The next day, the missionary was distributing Christmas packages and passing by, he heard the cry of a baby and traced him, only to discover the mother was frozen to death still holding her baby. The missionary saved the baby.

Mothers are really blessings from God. Their roles begin from conception and end at death. Their job begins early in the morning and ends late at night. Hence, you should appreciate and obey your mother.

QUOTE: Appreciate and obey your mother.

CHALLENGE: Honour your mother.

PRAYER: Lord, help me to appreciate and respect my mum.
