The children of Central Church of the Brethren provided the content for today's post.
Yesterday was Mother's Day. During the Children's Story, I shared this passage of Scripture with the kids:
Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. "Honor your father and mother"—which is the first commandment with a promise—"that it may go well with you and that you may enjoy long life on the earth." (Ephesians 6:1-3).
After reading the passaged, I asked the kids, "what are 5 ways that you can honor your mother?" This is their list...
1. Listen to her.
2. Don't fight with your sisters.
3. Help with chores.
4. Don't mess with other people's stuff.
5. Give mom flowers.
Not bad advice. I hope each of you can find time---all year long---to honor your mother in these ways.
