A Mother’s Counsel.

Key Verse

“My son, hear the instruction of thy father, and forsake not the law of thy mother” (Proverbs 1:8).

Text — Proverbs 31:1-6


A mother repeatedly told her little boy to sit down. The boy continued to stand, disobeying his mother. Finally, the mother went to him and forced him down on a chair. The boy said, “I may be sitting down on the outside, but on the inside, I’m still standing up!” What a rebellious heart! “The eye that mocketh at his father, and despiseth to obey his mother, the ravens of the valley shall pick it out, and the young eagles shall eat it” (Proverbs 30:17).

Many youths who are disobedient to their parents come to an untimely end.
As we grow up from adolescence to adulthood, as believers we should lay to heart godly instructions received from our mothers. A mother’s admonitions are to be laid in the heart for our good to bring smiles to their faces. Yes, be a child that rejoices the mother’s heart. Do you expect your children to honor and obey you in the future? If your answer is yes, then, do so to your mother now. The seeds you sow today, you will reap tomorrow.


Lay to heart Godly instructions


Children, obey your parents in the Lord.

Prayer for today

Dear Lord, help me to obey my mother’s counsels.
