How To Love Your Mother

Introduction: How can we really love our Mothers? Here are a few ways practical ways:

“Honour thy father and mother; which is the first commandment with promise. That it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth” (Eph 6:2-3).

1. Love your Mother by Telling her! 
“I Love You”! Have you told your Mother that you love her? Send that in a text, or a special card. Surprise her with a hand written note expressing your gratitude for her. 
2. Love your Mother by Showing her! 
Take her out to eat at her favorite restaurant or fix her favorite meal. Buy her some beautiful flowers…. roses or even a nice dress or house shoes. 
3. Love your Mother by Helping her! 
Help your Mother by listening to her, caring for her needs. If she is getting older, find out how you can do things for her; i.e. wash the dishes, fold the clothes or iron them. 
4. Love your Mother by praying for her! 
Pray with her and for her thanking Jesus for giving her to you. Pray for her health, her faith, and her concerns. 

5. Love your Mother by respecting her!

Hold her in high esteem regardless of her downfalls. We’ve all missed the mark. Praise her for what she has done for you and others. 
6. Love your Mother by spending time with her! 
Talk about when she grew up. Discuss her family childhood, her siblings, etc. Take her for a ride or a trip to spend some quality time. 

7. Love your Mother by honoring her!

Let her know that she is special! 

Conclusion: Whether you’ve had a good or bad mom, thank God anyway for His great love and forgiveness in your life. Be willing to forgive her. Make restitution with her if at all possible. Focus on her good qualities and the things she has taught you. Talk with her about Jesus and heaven.
