Douglas MacArthur’s mom used to send letters to his superiors suggesting it was high time for her son to be promoted to general. James and John had a mom like that. “[Jesus] said to her, ‘What do you want?’ She replied, ‘Permit these two sons of mine to sit, one at your right hand and one at your left, in your kingdom.’ Jesus answered, ‘You don’t know what you are asking! …To sit at my right and at my left is not mine to give. Rather, it is for those for whom it has been prepared by my Father.’” (Matt. 20:21, 22a-23) Moms, pray for your sons and let God take care of the promotions.
