Join us this Mother’s Day as we will explore the story of a mother in the Bible who had to let her son go. In this story, we see that loving mothers protect their children and are willing to make sacrifices for their well-being. Don’t miss this opportunity to honor the incredible women in our lives and learn from their example.
It is challenging to be a good mother. Especially when difficult circumstances arise and unexpected problems happen. Many of you could tell stories of mothers who sacrificed a lot for your well-being. They listened to you. They modeled compassion by serving you when needed, even though it might’ve been challenging at times. This message will give thanks for mothers and children who deeply love each other, like Naomi and Ruth.
The National Restaurant Association reports that Mother’s Day is the biggest day of the year for restaurants. Mother’s Day is the Super Bowl for florists. Why do we need to celebrate moms? Partly because being a mom is hard work. Partly because moms gave birth to us and without them we wouldn’t be here. And partly because moms have a tendency to be hard on themselves.
