Sunday 28th February 2021 Devotion
Scripture:- Ephesians 6:1-9
Topic:- Be Faithful To Your Parent
Text:- Ephesians 6:2

Daughter: Mummy, please, help me manage this 20k, when I get to Lagos, I will send something again. (And she gave her mother 20k and put another 10k inside the envelope and drop it under the pillow on the bed).

Mother: Thank you my daughter, but what about the one you put under the pillow on the bed?

Daughter: I want to give that to my father.

Mother: How much is that?

Daughter: N10,000.00 Mummy!

Mother: Haa, is that not too much for your father. Do you think he needs money? N5,000.00 is okay for him.

Daughter: Mummy are you sure 5k is okay for him?

Mother: Yes. After all, he just collected his N20,000.00 Pension allowance on Friday.

Daughter: Thank you for the advice Mummy. (She then removed 5k from the money and put it back into her bag). She carries the envelope and she gets out of her mother’s room and went to meet her father in the sitting room.

Daughter: Daddy, I am going back to Lagos. Please, take this token from me, Sir.

Father: How much is that? (The father asked without collecting the money from her).

Daughter: N5,000.00 Daddy. She replied.

Father: Thank you, my daughter, please, go and add it to the money you gave to your mother. (Though the father was not aware of the amount she gave to her mother). Don’t you know that I was about to enter the room when your mother was advising you that N10,000.00 is too much for me?

So N10,000.00 is too much for me now but it was not too much for me when I was single-handedly responsible for your School fees from your Elementary School to your Second Degree and paying your hostel fee in the Secondary School and your pocket money throughout your University education. Please, I don’t need money as she rightly said.

Daughter: Crying, and went back to meet her mother in the room. Mummy, you see what you have caused now, after I have given you N20,000.00, you said N10,000.00 is too much for my father.

Mothers, allow and advise your children to care for and love their fathers too. Most especially those fathers that denied themselves the comforts of life to ensure their children did not lack and are properly cared for.

Prayer Point:-
Oh Lord God, help me to be faithful to my Parent henceforth by fire, in the name of Jesus Christ.

Happy Lord’s Day!

If you want to give your life to Christ; you want your sins forgiven; you want to become a child of God; you want to experience the realities of new birth; you want to make heaven;

Or you were once saved and fell along the line, and now you want to rededicate your life to Christ…

Then pray this short prayer of Faith

Say it loud and mean it:

“Lord Jesus, I surrender my life to you today. Forgive me my sins, wash me with your blood. I believe you died for me, on the third day you rose again that I may be justified. Right now, I believe that my sins are forgiven; I’m justified by your blood; I’m born-again; I’m saved; I’m a child of God; I’m free from the power of sin to serve the living God. Thank you Jesus for receiving me; thank you Jesus for restoring me; thank you Jesus for saving me.

Thank God for your soul. I congratulate you for the best decision of your life. For further details on how to grow in this new light, please click the CONTACT page or visit TACN or any bible believing church near you and ask for the pastor in charge.
