Hebrews 12:7 Remember those who led you; who spoke the Word of God to you,
and considering the result of their conduct imitate their faith.
This scripture immediately makes me think of my mom, and it challenges me. My mom is so strong in her faith, and it is my desire to imitate her faith to the best of my ability.
1 Thess. 5:12But we request of you, brethren, that you appreciate those who diligently labor among you, and have charge over you in the Lord and give you instruction,
I could not truly honor my mom without thanking her for all the work she put in raising her three children and running our home. She has always worked diligently to provide a loving home, wisdom, advice, and instruction. She took her charge as a mother seriously, and I am eternally grateful that she took the time and made the effort to create such a wonderful family atmosphere and to impart wisdom and instruction into my life.
My mom has always been there for me, both in my childhood and now in my adult life. I can honestly say that she has guided me through the best and the darkest times of my life with grace and wisdom that only comes from being a faithful studier of God's Word, and living out the truth found in it.
I love you mom and thank you for all your work, your wisdom, and your love. Have a blessed Mother's Day.
