I. Against All Odds

A. The Importance of Honoring Mothers

1. Mother’s Day isn’t a biblical holiday but a holiday established over a century ago to honor mothers for the sacrifices they make for their children. The bible teaches us to honor, obey and cherish mothers. Mothering is a job where there is no retirement and usually no acknowledgement.
