Moses became the deliverer of God’s chosen people, but his important role would not have been possible if it had not been for the courage and commitment of his mother. She was determined to protect him, even though Pharaoh had ordered every newborn Israelite boy in Egypt to be drowned.

Many mothers throughout history have demonstrated this kind of selfless commitment. Women bathed, nurtured, and cared for their children when they were helpless. Women sacrificed so that their children could have food and clothing. Women worked two jobs so that their children could be educated.

Many men and women have recognized how much they owe to their mothers. Yet, sadly, many have neglected to have an attitude of thankfulness and gratitude. How many mothers have been taken for granted! Tomorrow is a day for children to honor their mothers and grandmothers and to show gratitude to them.

Ask God to open your eyes to the ways others have been used in your life, particularly your mother or grandmothers. Pray for His blessings on them. If you are a husband, realize all that your wife means to you and shower her with love and gratitude. Encourage your children to do the same. If your mother and grandmother are still alive, let them know how much you appreciate all that they have done for you. Seek to demonstrate gratefulness toward all the people God has brought into your life.
