Gershom was the first son of Moses, but we never really heard much about him. This is as a result of one of the mistakes made by great men.
Most great men leave their children behind; they train other men’s children. They unconsciously invest in their young, uneducated errand boys who go about with them. Little do the great men know, that while their children are at home watching TV, the uneducated young errand boy that goes around with them is understudying and learning the keys to Success and greatness.
Little do the wives know that as the house girls stay in the kitchen and the kids sit in the living room watching TV, they are empowering the uneducated village girl, and leaving their children behind.
Little does the pastor know that as he goes to church investing in other people’s children, and he doesn’t sit daily with his children discussing the word of God, is 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.
Moses left his children behind with his wife and father-in-law Jethro, while Joshua became His errand boy, watching the different miracles, understudying Moses, no wonder, Joshua became the next leader of Israel. Even though, Jethro brought them back much later.
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… Let them experience what you experience that makes you YOU, let them become your PAs, even your errand boys and girls. Let Peoplle say that they are following their father’s step. Please, DON’T LEAVE THEM BEHIND.
