The Good Side Of Our Parents Should Be Emulated

Sunday 8th March 2020 Devotion

Scripture:- Genesis 6:1-22

Topic:- The Good Side Of Our Parents Should Be Emulated

Text:- Genesis 6:5

A youngster asked his Grandfather: “Grandpa! How did you people live before with No technology; No aeroplanes; No internet; No computers; No dramas; No TVs; No aircons; No cars; No mobile phones?”
Grandpa replied, “Just like how your generation live today, No prayers; No compassion; No honor; No respect; No character; No shame; No modesty.”
We, the people born between 1950-1970, are really the blessed ones. Our life is living proof. While playing and riding “rented” bicycles in our youth, we never wore helmets. After school, we played until dusk; we never watched TV. We played with real friends, not internet friends.

If we ever felt thirsty, we drank public tap water not bottled water. We never got ill sharing the same glass of juice with four friends. We never gained weight eating plates of rice and eba everyday. Nothing happened to our feet despite roaming barefoot. Very few had shoes!
We never used any vitamin supplements to keep ourselves healthy. We used to create our own toys and play with them. Most parents were not rich. They gave love not worldly material things.
We never had cellphones, DVDs, play station, XBox, video games, personal computers, internet, chat; but we had real friends. We visited our friend’s home uninvited and enjoyed their meals with them. It was a joy whenever we hear, “Eyin omo kekere, e wa je saa’ra.”
We holidayed with relations and Relatives lived close by, so family time was enjoyed. We may have been priviledged to appear in black and white photos but you can find colourful memories in those photographs.
We are a unique and most understanding generation, because we are the last generation who respected and listened to our own parents. And also, the first generation who have to listen to their own children. We are a LIMITED edition!

Prayer Point:- Oh Lord God, help me to understand what You have for me in this life and thereby walk therein, 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.
