Motivation Monday: Mother Knows Best

Motivation Monday. Since this is Mother’s Day week, let’s add a bit of joy to the beginning of a busy week. Not sure about you, but I’ve got several phrases I tell myself that are the exact things my mother used to say when I was a little girl.”Look both ways before you cross the road.” “Be kind to your sister.” “Make your bed when you first get up.”

So let’s have some fun.

There was the mother of Samson who said,

#10. Sampson! Get your hand out of that lion. You don’t know where it’s been!

And then this one:

#9. David! I told you not to play in the house with that sling! Go practice your harp. We pay good money for those lessons!

#8. Of top ten sayings of Biblical mothers –

Abraham! Stop wandering around the countryside and get home for supper!

#7. Shadrach, Meshac and Abednego! Leave those clothes outside, you smell like a dirty ole furnace!

#6. Cain! Get off your brother! You’re going to kill him some day!


#4. Gideon! Have you been hiding in the wine press again? Look at your clothes!

#3. James and John! No more burping contests at the dinner table, please. People are going to call you sons of thunder!

#2. Judas! Have you been in my purse again?

#1. Jesus what do you think? You were born in a barn?

“Her children arise and call her blessed; and her husband also, and he praises her.” Proverbs 31:28
