Sunday is Mother’s Day, a day to honor our mothers. My Mom was the best. She is the reason that I am serving the Lord today with my life. I was in church every week, no excuses were accepted. I usually attended 2 or 3 different Vacation Bible School events every summer growing up, summer camp, Sunday School, Youth Group and even prayer meeting where there were 4 old ladies and me. Like many of the most renowned Christian workers my Moms main thing was that she was faithful, she just did what she was supposed to do year after year after year. The first part of Proverbs 14:1 is a great description of my Mom, “The wise woman builds her house, but the foolish tears it down with her own hands.” My Mom was wise and she build a great family and legacy.
Today in our culture there are many foolish woman and men who because they didn’t acquire wisdom in the early years of their life tear their relationships, marriages, and family’s down with their own hands. They usually do this with their words.
