What Is Man's Chief End?

Man's chief end is to glorify God, [a] and to enjoy Him for ever. [b]
[a]. Ps. 86:9; Isa. 60:21; Rom. 11:36; I Cor. 6:20; 10:31; Rev. 4:11
[b]. Ps. 16:5-11; 144:15; Isa. 12:2; Luke 2:10; Phil. 4:4; Rev. 21:3-4
Every new believer has been set apart by God, separated unto God to be transformed into the likeness of His Son, Jesus Christ. In this sense, every believer is a saint- a person separated from his old sinful way of life and set apart by God to increasingly glorify God as his life is transformed!

Mother's Day brings many different emotions to many people. Happy feelings, sad feelings, and even angry, resentful feelings. Some may even have guilty feelings stemming from their own mothering. But for me, today, I have grateful feelings for my mom. We have not always seen eye to eye on many things, but even so, she remains loving and accepting of me. Being a mother myself, I know how hard it is to let go and let God... And my mom has done that graciously. And I am thankful for that. She has loved me like any mother would love her child... unconditionally.

Thank you, mama, for being my mom. Thank you for putting up with me and for trying to understand me, even when you didn't know how. Thank you for all of the advice you have lovingly given me over the years. And especially, thank you for praying for me!!!

I pray that today you will be blessed, knowing that I love you dearly! May you have many happy and joyful days ahead. Remember, the Joy of the Lord is your strength!!!

Many Hugs and Kisses!!!
Your Daughter

What a sweet tribute to your mom! We are blessed to have our moms still with us. So many of my friends have lost their moms, and I am grateful to still have mine.

Thank you so much for leaving me a comment. I will do my best to reply in a timely manner. Keep in mind that I am a busy, homeschool mom and wife, so please give me grace if I am not able to respond quickly.

Remember that this is a Christian blog, so I will not give any time to rude, inflammatory, or gossipy comments. We can agree to disagree, but only in a loving, Christlike manner.
