Invest In Your Children Too Shepherds, Don’t Leave Them Behind

March 26, 2017 / Alonge Michael / Saints & Sinners / 4 Comments »

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.

    Saw this post online and decided to post.
    WE WILL NEVER SERVE YOUR GOD (A Must Read For Every Pastor & Parents)
    At her father’s funeral the pastor’s daughter (who was a prostitute) watched and listened as church members described all wonderful deeds done by the pastor of 10,000 capacity church and worldwide television ministry.
    They spoke about his care, love, generosity, miracles, signs and wonders and tenderness when he was alive.

    But after the funeral the daughter of the late pastor asked her siblings and her mother – who was that man those people were talking about at the funeral – is he the same man that raised us?
    They must be telling lies. All the children including Jack (a drug addict) agreed that they were telling lies.
    But their mother said they were not telling lies,
    YOUR FATHER WAS A GOOD PASTOR, BUT A BAD HUSBAND AND BAD FATHER, HE GROOMED AND GREW THE CHURCH BUT LEFT HIS FAMILY GROANING. FIRE WAS IN HIS BONE TO WORK FOR GOD, BUT LOVE, AFFECTION AND INTIMACY WAS NEVER IN HIS MIND FOR HIS FAMILY, I WAS HIS WIFE, CHURCH WAS HIS MISTRESS, HE LOVED THE MISTRESS AND ABANDONED HIS WIFE, HE WON THE CHURCH BUT LOST HIS FAMILY, WHAT A SHAME!

    The children later wrote and placed on his tomb:

    DAD, YOU PASTORED AND NURTURED THEM BUT ABANDONED US, DAD, YOU DID A LOT OF REVIVAL PROGRAMS BUT YOUR FAMILY IS NEVER REVIVED,
    DAD, YOU COUNSELED THEM, BUT WE LIVED WITHOUT COUNSEL, DAD, YOU WERE A SHEPHERD BUT WE LIVED WITHOUT A PASTURE, YOU SHOWED THEM LOVE, BUT WE LIVED IN THE DESERT OF AFFECTION. DAD, YOU WERE A SUCCESSFUL PASTOR, COUNSELOR, BUT A TOTAL FAILURE AS A HUSBAND AND FATHER. DAD, WE HARDLY KNOW THAT YOU ARE DEAD, BECAUSE YOU WERE NEVER THERE FOR US. THIS ONE THING WE PROMISE YOU, WE WILL NEVER SERVE YOUR GOD.

    We all need to ask for help from our Maker. We have a lot to do as fathers and mothers especially leaders in the House of God. Don’t abandon your children n family for ministry.
