While growing up and while always home because of my circumstances, I was always around my father’s goats. I was always the one at home when the females put to birth their kids.
I always pondered when the goats went through the process of birthing their kids. But one thing that never left me wondering seriously was this: once the kid came down from the mother’s womb, it would rest a bit while the mum cleaned it. Then it would get up gingerly and head straight for the mum’s breasts and start sucking. I always wondered who taught him to get up and to know where the breast was.
1. In life, just like the kid, as long as we remain on the ground, we will never have access to the milk of life, of success, happiness and fulfilment.
2. Nobody will teach us to get up, we must do it ourselves, no matter how gingerly at first.
3. We must know where the milk is: our talents, our source of help, calling, happiness.
4. Like the kid, we might just be starving on the ground, while the milk that rightly belongs to us wastes.
To get happiness out of your marriage and relationship, ministry and life, GET UP. ONCE YOU STAND, THEN KNOW WHERE THE MILK IS AND MOVE FOR IT!
YOU CAN’T SUCK THE MILK OF LIFE GIVEN YOU BY GOD UNTIL YOU STAND, AND MOVE TOWARDS THE SOURCE! The wrong source also means starvation.
God’s grace awaits.
Yes, YOU CAN!
