Beau's Mother's Day Sermon

"Honor your father and your mother, as the LORD your God has commanded you, that your days may be long, and that it may be well with you in the land which the LORD your God is giving you...He who loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me. And he who loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me...For whoever does the will of My Father in heaven is My brother and sister and mother.” (Deuteronomy 5:16; Matthew 10:37, 12:50) Mom used to be in the hospital a lot as a kid back in the dark ages when there weren't many hospitals just for kids. Her mom used to stay with her a lot then. She sacrificed a lot of her life to be there for mom, take care of her and support her. That is what love is...loving someone so much that you would sacrifice your life for their's. And that is exactly what Jesus did on the cross for us. As much as my mom loves her mom, she loves God even more, and if mom had to, she would sacrifice that because her mom is a living example of that kind of love, and that is what God commands us to do. So, whether or not you have a mom you have that example of love through Christ. Love, Beau
