Mother's...A masterpiece

Well we weren’t dirt poor like these peasant farmers but we ate a lot of potatoes over the years. Eat your dinner, brush your teeth, tidy your room, do your homework, take out the bin, yada, yada. A mother trying to prepare you for life ahead, spoiling your fun & setting you up for embarrassment. Sacrificial & motherly love…not always sweet, tender & patient, but precious none the less.


104. Q. What does God require in the fifth commandment?
A. That I show all honour, love, and faithfulness to my father and mother and to all those in authority over me, submit myself with due obedience to their good instruction and discipline,[1] and also have patience with their weaknesses and shortcomings,[2] since it is God's will to govern us by their hand.[3]
[1] Ex. 21:17; Prov. 1:8; 4:1; Rom. 13:1, 2; Eph. 5:21, 22; 6:1-9; Col. 3:18-4:1. [2] Prov. 20:20; 23:22; I Pet.2:18. [3] Matt. 22:21, Rom. 13:1-8; Eph. 6:1-9; Col. 3:18-21.
