God’s Love Expressed- Pastor Matt

The Bible has much to say about moms and dads.  It mostly says that we are to honor our parents and to listen to their teaching (Proverbs 6:20, 21).   In fact, our parents are so important that the 5th commandment regards how we treat them—right before the commandment to not murder (Exodus 20).

How we treat our parents is incredibly important in the eyes of God.  Leviticus 20:9 says that if anyone curses their father or mother they are to be put to death—Wow!

Let’s agree on one thing: God wants us to treat our parents well even when they aren’t looking or don’t deserve it.

Why?

God’s expression of love comes most clearly through the love of our parents.  Take our mothers for example.  In general, the clearest example of compassion is our mothers.  The clearest example of being perpetually on our side is our mothers.  The clearest example of self-sacrifice is our mothers.  The clearest example of love never-ending is our mothers.  The list goes on.

God wants us to honor our mothers and fathers, because they show us what God is like.  It is through our parents that God gives us our most basic love needs.

Mother’s Day is not just about our moms.  It’s about what God is showing us through our moms.  Our Mothers are God’s way of saying he has unlimited compassion on us, he is perpetually on our side, he sacrificed his Son for us and his love is never-ending.  Let’s honor our moms as the living expression of God’s perfect love.
