Getting Paid to Raise Your Own Child
Exodus 2:1-10 and Hebrews 11:23-28
What My Mother Taught Me
My mother taught me about BEHAVIOR
Real Mothers know right where their kitchen utensils are…out in the sandbox!
Real Mothers don't eat quiche; they don't have time to make it.
Real Mothers sometimes have sticky floors, filthy ovens, but happy kids.
Real Mothers know and accept that dried play dough doesn't come out of shag carpets.
Real Mothers don't want to know what the vacuum just sucked up.
Real Mothers know that a child's growth is not measured by height or
years or grade...It is marked by the progression from “Mama” to “Mommy” to “Mom”.
Different views of Mom:
4 YEARS OF AGE ~ My Mommy can do anything!
8 YEARS OF AGE ~ My Mom knows a lot! A whole lot!
12 YEARS OF AGE ~ My Mother doesn't really know quite everything.
14 YEARS OF AGE ~ Mom…duh!
16 YEARS OF AGE ~ My mom? She's like, so “not cool”.
18 YEARS OF AGE ~ That old woman? She's way out of touch!
25 YEARS OF AGE ~ Well, she might know a little bit about it.
35 YEARS OF AGE ~ Before we decide, let's get Mom's opinion.
45 YEARS OF AGE ~ Wonder what Mom thinks about it?
We have an interesting story in our text today, where a mother is paid for taking care of her own child. [pics] From that I want to emphasize to you that you will also be paid for rearing your children. Let's look further at this text.
I. The Planning – vv. 1-4
A. She planned to be a Godly woman
B. She planned to raise Godly children
Many moms get a plan from the Lord and so did Moses’ mother.
1. What plans are you making?
2. Are you a godly mother?
3. Are your plans godly plans?
II. The Protection. vv. 3, 4, 7
A. Protected by … The
Bonding. V. 3a
B. Protected by … The
Building [the Ark] V. 3b
C. Protected by … The
Boating. V. 3c
Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.
Train up a child in the way he should go:
and when he is old, he will not depart from it.
III. The Payment. V. 9
parents receive wages. All children are special…Moses was no exception!
I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth.
