SERIES: PICKING UP THE TOWEL
Larry Wynn
SUBJECT: MOTHER’S DAY

I. INTRODUCTION

A. “WE ARE LIVING IN A CHANGING WORLD.
MOTHERHOOD, THE AMERICAN FLAG, AND
APPLE PIE ARE THREE THINGS KNOWN FOR
THEIR STABILITY AND NATIONAL APPEAL.
TODAY, HOWEVER, THE PRICE OF APPLES IS
INFLATED, THE FLAG IS AT TIMES
MISTREATED, AND EVEN MOTHERHOOD IS
ABUSED.”

B. TODAY IS MOTHER’S DAY.

1. IT IS THE DAY WHEN THE NATION
HONORS ITS MORE THAN 50 MILLION
MOMS.

2. I AM TOLD MORE PHONE CALLS ARE
RECORDED ON THIS DAY THAN ANY
OTHER DAY OF THE YEAR.

C. THERE IS NO MORE GODLY SERVANT THAN
THAT OF A GODLY MOM.

1. WE HAVE BEEN IN A SERIES BASED ON
JESUS WASHING THE FEET OF THE
DISCIPLES.


2. THIS HAS BEEN A SPRINGBOARD FOR
US INTO LESSONS ON WHAT IT MEANS
FOR ALL OF US TO HAVE THE
ATTITUDE OF CHRIST WHEN IT COMES
TO SERVICE.

3. WE HAVE BEEN TALKING ABOUT
“PICKING UP THE TOWEL”.

4. ONE MOM SAID TO ME, “I DO PICK UP
THE TOWEL, I WASH IT, FOLD IT, AND
PUT IT AWAY. ALONG COMES
SOMEONE ELSE AND PUTS IT RIGHT
BACK IN THE FLOOR AGAIN.”

5. AFTER AN ELEMENTARY TEACHER
GAVE A SCIENCE LESSON ON
MAGNETS, SHE GAVE THE STUDENTS
A QUIZ TO SEE HOW MUCH THEY HAD
LEARNED. ONE OF THE QUESTIONS
READ, “MY NAME STARTS WITH 'M.’ I
HAVE SIX LETTERS AND I PICK UP
THINGS. WHAT AM I?” HALF THE
CLASS ANSWERED WITH THE SIX
LETTER WORD, “MOTHER.”

D. MOM IS KEY TO A HEALTHY NATION.

1. THEODORE ROOSEVELT SAID, “THE
MOTHER IS THE ONE SUPREME ASSET
OF NATIONAL LIFE. SHE IS MORE
IMPORTANT, BY FAR, THAN THE
SUCCESSFUL STATESMAN, BUSINESS
MAN, ARTIST, OR SCIENTIST.”

2. ABRAHAM LINCOLN SAID, “NO MAN IS
POOR WHO HAS A GODLY MOTHER.”


3. LINCOLN ALSO SAID UPON BECOMING
PRESIDENT, “ALL THAT I AM, OR CAN
BECOME, I OWE TO MY ANGEL
MOTHER.”

4. ONE LEADER SAID, GIVE ME A
GENERATION OF CHRISTIAN MOTHERS
AND I WILL UNDERTAKE TO CHANGE
THE WHOLE FACE OF SOCIETY IN
TWELVE MONTHS.”

E. THE BIBLE IS FILLED WITH WONDERFUL
MOMS.

1. HANNAH: THE MOM WHO PRAYED
FOR A CHILD AND WAS GIVEN
SAMUEL, WHO SHE DEDICATED TO
THE LORD.

2. MOTHER OF TIMOTHY: SHE WAS
RESPONSIBLE FOR HIS FAITH.

3. THEN THERE IS JOCHEBED. THIS IS
WHERE WE WANT TO FOCUS OUR
ATTENTION TODAY. SHE TEACHES US
VALUABLE LESSONS.

II. MOMS WHO ARE DISCERNING.

A. WE LIVE IN CHANGING CIRCUMSTANCES.

1. EXODUS 2 TELLS US THERE WAS A
PHARAOH WHO CAME ON THE SCENE
WHO DID NOT KNOW JOSEPH.

2. THAT CHANGED THE
CIRCUMSTANCES AND THE
ENVIRONMENT FOR THE PEOPLE.


3. WE LIVE IN A GENERATION THAT
DOESN’T KNOW JESUS.

4. THAT T ...
