A Mother’s Tears

Scripture Passage: 
Genesis 3:16; Proverbs 10:1; Luke 2:34-35
Attached audio files: 

INTRODUCTION: The sorrow of childbirth is often exceeded by the sorrows of seeing the needs of your child and toiling over their wellbeing. A mother’s lot is often defined by her tears.

  1. FOR THE CHILD NOT BORN
    1. Sarah (Genesis 16:1-5)
    2. Hannah (1Samuel 1:1-10)
  2. FOR THE CHILD THAT DIES
    1. Bathsheba (2Samuel 12:15-18)
    2. Naomi (Ruth 1:1-5, 19-21)
  3. FOR CHILDREN AT ODDS
    1. Rebekah (Genesis 25:21-23)
    2. Eve (Genesis 4:8-10)
  4. FOR THE CHILD THAT SUFFERS
    1. Syro-Phenician Woman (Matthew 15:21-28)
    2. Mary (Luke 2:33-35)
  5. FOR THE CHILD THAT STRAYS
    1. Eve (Genesis 4:1-7)
    2. Prodigal Son’s Mother (Luke 15:11-13)
    3. The Heaviness of Heart (Proverbs 10:1)

CONCLUSION: The godly mother has many tears, but God keeps those tears in His bottle. Psalm 56:8-9 states, “Thou tellest my wanderings: put thou my tears into thy bottle: are they not in thy book? When I cry unto thee, then shall mine enemies turn back: this I know; for God is for me.” Will you cry unto Him and know that He is with you?
