Teaching the Word for Growth — Reaching the World for Christ

Pastor’s Newsletter Article

This is the latest of the articles Pastor Richert writes for the monthly church newsletter.


May is a month in which we honor various groups of people. Calvin Coolidge once said, “No person was ever honored for what he received. Honor has been the reward for what he gave.”

One group of people we honor is our mothers. They epitomize what it means to give. Mothers sacrificially give their time, energy, love, and resources to help their children grow into responsible adults. God specifically commands us to honor our mothers (Ex. 20:12).

Another group of people we honor is our servicemen and women who sacrificially gave their lives for us to be able to enjoy the freedoms and privileges we have in this country. We owe so much to those brave men and women.

Another group of people we honor is our graduates. They have given much time and effort to study and learn in order to prepare themselves to live successful lives.

Each of these groups of people is worthy of honor. But the One who ultimately deserves the greatest honor is our loving heavenly Father. He has given us everything we need to enjoy life on this earth as well as eternal life in heaven (2 Peter 1:3). We need to live our lives every day to honor Him for everything and for everyone He has given to us.
