Today is the Lord’s day.
In our church, we won’t be hearing another sermon about 1 Samuel 1. It’s not a bad verse (is there such a thing?) but it is somehow always tied to motherhood. We will be hearing about the Lord Jesus Christ. This does not mean that we refuse to honor mothers–one of God’s greatest gifts to us–we do honor them, but it means we know the focus of the Sunday worship.
It may be Mother’s Day for the rest of the world, but when the church that Jesus Christ loves and died for gathers together, let them remember that the Lord alone is to be worshiped.
