Pastoral Perspective

" Give her of the fruit of her hands, and let her works praise her in the gates."
- Proverbs 31:31, (ESV)

Moms are terrific. Yes!--there's no one like mom.

This year, I thank the Lord for my mother. She not only taught me and cared for me, she was always there when I needed her.

Christian moms are wonderful about sharing Christ with their kids and reading them the Bible. Deuteronomy says, " You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise." -Deuteronomy 6:5-7, (ESV). Praise God for all the parents who do this - thank you.

I'm very grateful for my mom. Thank you, Lord! And we, as a church family, are very grateful for all our mothers. Thank you for the wonderful person you are, and all you do.

In Christ
Pastor Tim
