Notes And Next Steps

What if moms were “looking for _______ from people” (1 Thessalonians 2:6) every day, like the kind of ________ they receive on Mother’s Day?

The most gentle and sensitive woman among you…will begrudge the husband she loves and her own son or daughter. (Deuteronomy 28:56)

We were not looking for praise from people, not from you or anyone else, even though as apostles of Christ we could have asserted our authority. Instead, we were gentle among you. Just as a nursing mother cares for her children, so we cared for you. (1 Thessalonians 2:6-8)

“Can a mother forget the baby at her breast and have no compassion on the child she has borne? Though she may forget, I will not forget you” (Isaiah 49:15).

“Mom, I’m sorry for _______.” Give her a hug and say, “Will you forgive me?”

_______ your family what God has _______ you.
