Sunday Morning SoundBytes – 5/12/2019

Sunday’s message was a Mother’s Day sermon from the Famous Mothers in the Bible series. The message was called Leah – The Unloved Mother, taken from Genesis 24:19-35. Here is a brief outline of the message:

I. Don’t put all your emphasis on physical appearance (Genesis 29:14-20)
   A. Godly character is more important than physical beauty
      – Proverbs 31:30; 1 Peter 3:3-4
   B. Man looks on the outside, but God looks at the heart
      – 1 Samuel 16:7

II. Don’t let anything interfere with the marital bond (Genesis 29:21-30)
   A. Husband and wife share a one-flesh relationship
      – Genesis 2:24
   B. The husband should love his wife as he loves his own body
      – Ephesians 5:28

III. Don’t base your identity on your children (Genesis 29:31-35)
