Often times, as a child, we forget that we have three parents – God, a Dad, and a Mom. And I find it interesting how a child will often times pick, when it is convenient for them, between which parent to listen to. What if the three actually pulled together and gave the same answer? What if God, Dad and Mom said, “No candy today,” or “no TV until all your homework is done.” Then what? Then the answer will be the same no matter where the child sought something different, a more desirable answer. Now apply it to something much more important, say, “Should I get into that car since my friend was drinking tonight,” or “God, Dad, and Mom have all told me drugs will kill me so I better just walk away.”
The voice of three through the power of one.
3. YOU ARE AN EXTENSION OF HER LIFE.
In mother’s arms you represent the proof of the miracle of life.
She carried you,
she bore you,
and she spends her life maturing you to release you to life.
From there you will repeat the process with your own offspring.
It is the way of God and the way of life.
The Bible says that God was thinking of you
and the womb He created you in.
13 For You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother’s womb.
14 I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, And that my soul knows very well.
