The Elderly!

I wonder how success is truly measured in God’s sight!! Hmmmmm. Can anyone be regarded as successful, though they have all the similitude of success, cars, houses, huge funds investment, savings etcetera if they have or are not taking care of their parents? Mark 7:5-13

The religious always hold unto the mundane, neglecting the weightier and most important law of the Lord. Loving God, our neighbors, and ourselves is more important than any other for upon this is all established.

Many parents are in nursing homes with no visitation, many are there in abject poverty while their kids are swimming in everything money can buy! Friends, if you are too busy to visit, employ someone to visit on your behalf for crying out loud!

Seriously, take time out to visit your parents, they cared for you and you should care for them now! Let them crossover knowing they were and are loved and that you are proud of who they are!

In some cultures, a parent that died in penury is buried in coffins worth $50,000 with the elaborate ceremonies of another $50,000. Can such children be termed successful? No! That child is but a failure!

Jesus when he was leaving the earth made provision for His mother even though he was not the only child of Mary. He said in John 19:26 ” When Jesus saw his mother there, and the disciple whom he loved standing nearby, he said to her, “Woman, here is your son,” and to the disciple,Here is your mother.”

Please friends, there is no excuse to neglect our parents! This is the first commandments with a promise of longevity!

Go show some love please!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Your Parents! Seriously Care For Them!

Jesus answered, “Isaiah was right about frauds like you, hit the bull’s-eye in fact: These people make a big show of saying the right thing, but their heart isn’t in it.

They act like they are worshiping me, but they don’t mean it. They just use me as a cover for teaching whatever suits their fancy,

Ditching God’s command and taking up the latest fads.” He went on, “Well, good for you.

You get rid of God’s command so you won’t be inconvenienced in following the religious fashions!

Moses said, ‘Respect your father and mother,’ and, ‘Anyone denouncing father or mother should be killed.’

But you weasel out of that by saying that it’s perfectly acceptable to say to father or mother, ‘Gift! What I owed you I’ve given as a gift to God,’ thus relieving yourselves of obligation to father or mother.

You scratch out God’s Word and scrawl a whim in its place. You do a lot of things like this.”
Mark 7:6‭-‬13 MSG
