You Only Have One Mother

By Rev. Jeremiah Cheung

Proverbs 23:22-25

You only have one mother who carried you in her womb for forty weeks. The Chinese refer to this period as “ten months in the womb.” There is a bond of life between you and her. You will never have another mother who gave you life and whose life is related in that way to you.

When our parents leave this world, we must remember them; more importantly, while our parents are alive, we must seize the opportunity to honor them.

Proverbs 23:22-25 teaches us how to honor our parents.

1. Listen to your parents v.22

2. Respect your parents v.23

3. Seek to please your parents. v24-25
