Is your child your priority or your career?
Which one is more important between children and career?
These questions are what every parent must answer. Like I said earlier that you should show your child the way to follow.
Many are great today but they are not proud of their children in the society. Their children are not trained in the right way because no time is dedicated for them all in the name of ministry and career.
Someone said, “Most great men leave their children behind while they train other men’s children. They unconsciously invest in their young, uneducated errand boys who go about with them. Little do such great men know, that while their children are at home watching TV and having nice time, the uneducated young errand boy that goes around with them is understudying and learning the keys to success and greatness.”
An ignorant mother disciplining her house girl not knowing that she is training her. The house girl stays in the kitchen while her children sit in the living room watching TV. She never knows that she is empowering the uneducated village girl, and leaving her children behind.
When the children grow up, they won’t be able to prepare meals for such mother when she needs them to do such.
Not only that, but this also applies to some pastors. They go to church investing in other people’s children, and he doesn’t sit daily with their children discussing the Word of God. They are like a man who is repairing another man’s car when his own car needs serious attention. When all is done, the other person will drive off, and he will have no car to drive.
No wonder, most pastors’ and great men’s kids become wayward, useless and cannot take over after their fathers, even when they manipulate to put them in charge.
There are many whose careers have taken away the joy of their homes. Their children and their families are in depression. These have to be resolved to make things better right now.
You have to have greater priority for your children as parents. Have time for your family because that is where love begins (Genesis of Love). Your home is the channel to instill virtues which will make you to be proud of your children anywhere.
Therefore, Fathers, Mothers, Pastors, Businessmen and Women, don’t leave your children behind. Carry them along. Stop training other men’s children while yours stay back at home.
While they enjoy the pleasures you provide, let your children experience what you experienced that makes you what you are – they will not die.
Let them become your personal assistants, even your errand boys and girls. Have a closer relationship with them.
Let people say that they are following their father’s step.
Please don’t leave them behind while you’re indirectly working and laboring for another man’s child. They are your future, invest in them now and you will gain it.
