A Mother's Wages: A Mother's Day Sermon
Mother's Day is one of the most special days in all of the year. We are told there are more telephone calls made on Mother's Day than any other time of the year. If you haven't called your mom yet, I want to encourage you to do so.

Mother's Day is a very special day. It is a day when we remember our mothers. We give her gifts and phone calls.

This bird could whistle Amazing Grace. This bird could quote the 23rd Psalm. It was an unusual bird. The cost of the bird was $30,000. But what did he care. He was wealthy so he spent the $30,000 and bought the bird for his mother and had it shipped to her. On Mother's Day he made his call to his mother. ''Mother, how did you like the bird I sent you?'' She said, ''O, it was delicious, son.'' I don't suppose any of you sons will get into that dilemma but it is a day when we send our mothers something very, very special.

Others have had godly mothers in the history of the world.
