YOU ARE THE FIRST TEACHER AND ROLE MODEL TO YOUR CHILD
Every seed implanted in the womb of a woman is yet another great life to be born. No one fell from heaven. Everyone on earth is born of a woman. The breast of a woman was suckled and her hands nurtured every suckling, every child to be a fine man or woman today.
Every great man today; everyone who sits on those seats of authority, be it the class prefect in schools (nursery, primary, secondary), class representative in the University, teachers, CEOs of companies, governors, senators, presidents, kings, etc., is to a large extent, a product of his exposure to life.
It is what a woman feeds into the souls of her children that makes them who they are. If a woman feeds a child with anger, hate, evil, so will he grow to be. If such a child is fed with the opposite – forgiveness, love, good, so will he be too.
In the life of every man on earth, there has been the touch of a woman be it morally, spiritually, psychologically, mentally and otherwise. Even those who are motherless have also experienced the touch of a woman, relatives or not.
For you to produce great leaders and kings of nations and kingdoms, you have to be a woman of greatness; a woman of virtue; a woman of beauty. You cannot give what you do not have. Look deep within yourself and ask yourself: “What qualities do I possess?”, “What virtues do I have?”
Margaret Nadauld said, “The world has enough women who are tough; We need women who are tender. There are enough women who are coarse; We need women who are kind. There are enough women who are rude; We need women who are refined. We have enough women of fame and fortune; We need more women of faith. We have enough greed; We need more goodness. We have enough vanity; We need more virtue. We have enough popularity; We need more purity”.
Isn’t this about right? Woman, in her own stead, is powerful enough to have an influence on man – positive or negative. Check out women in the bible: Jezebel, Esther, Judith, Ruth, Jochebed, (Mother of Moses), Sarah, Rebecca, Elizabeth (Mother of John the Baptist), Mary, Mother of Jesus, to mention but a few.
These women in their own way, positive or negative have made history – some in themselves, others, through their children.
These glorious and wonderful women have attained pedestals of greatness; pinnacles of glory. How about you? What do you want to be said about you long after you depart this world? Where do you want your names to be mentioned? What influence should be said that you had in the lives of others especially your children? The decision lies with you.
