From our Family and Music Minister
This Sunday, we celebrate Mother’s Day. I hope that if your mother is still with you, you have made a special effort to make your mom feel special. And if your mother has passed away, I hope you have many beautiful memories to treasure.
For my mom, one of the easiest ways to make her feel special was to go along with one of her crazy ideas. If you know me, I definitely get that from my mom. My mom loved to teach, especially when she got to teach GA’s(Girls in Action). Missions is a major component of GA’s, and my mother wanted the girls to experience what it would be like to be homeless for a day.
My mother made me get cardboard boxes, stools, old blankets, grocery carts, and whatever else we could find and turn the parking lot behind the Chamber of Commerce into a place they could meet for the day. Throughout the day, she taught how Jesus reached out to everyone and how we should follow that example. At the time, I did not appreciate what she was doing, probably because a friend and I had to stay in refrigerator boxes off to the side for the whole day so they would not be out there alone. However, looking back, I see that she would do anything to make young people understand the love of Christ and how we are to love our neighbor as ourselves.
Without a doubt, I can look back at the many times she was an example of what I should be. No matter your economic status, race, gender, or education level, she treated you the same. This was always evident to me by the people who came by to visit her at her store. She took the time to make each one of them feel important or unique. She was always willing to demonstrate the love of God to them, no matter the circumstance.
In no way am I trying to put my mother on a pedestal. She would admit that she was not perfect and was a sinner saved by grace. My intention is to share with you that in all the imperfect things my mother did, her love for Christ and love for others abundantly overshadowed all those imperfections. That is the legacy she left me.
What type of legacy are you leaving the young people in your life? You influence more by your actions and your way of life than you do by what you say. Are you leaving the legacy of gossiping, selfishness, or worldly desires? Or are you leaving the legacy of love, humility, and honoring Christ in the lives of those you love?
