CAC LIVING WATER DAILY DEVOTIONAL GUIDE
Sunday, October 8, 2017
TOPIC: A MOTHER OR MURDERER
Read: 2 Kings 6:26-29
MEMORISE:

The wise woman builds her house, but the foolish pulls it down with her hands.

(Proverbs 14:1)
Wickedness is a matter of the mind. Situation or circumstances do not necessarily make someone wicked as some people claim. Someone may be in the best environment, enjoying the best treatment that life could offer, and yet be wicked. Today's living water is directed to mothers and their impacts on raising godly children. Parenting is a subject that should not be handled with levity, anywhere in our society. The future and destiny of every nation is hooked on parenting. Good children who would become patriotic citizens are products of good parenting. We shall not fail God, ourselves and the society in Jesus' name.
Let us take cues from some mothers in the Bible and by so doing, we could judge whether they were truly mothers or murderers. Athaliah: She killed all the king's son, and usurped the throne to serve her quest for power. The two harlots in the text: One slept on her son and tried to claim the son of another. How did the second harlot demonstrate her true maternity? Two women, who conspired to feed on their children during the terrible famine. The second woman tried to show that she is a true mother by hiding her own son, yet she joined in destroying another's son.
What an aberration! How about mothers who waylaid the destiny of their children and others' children and donated them in their evil coven? If all mothers could follow the pace of some godly mothers in the Bible (Sarah, Jochebed, Hannah, Elizabeth, etc.), the world would have become a better place. True mothers usually trust in God to fulfil their God-given roles in the lives of their wards. They do not allow environmental voices to determine their actions and attitude, in raising their children, for God and posterity. Come what may, a hen will hide its chickens under its feathers.
PRAYER POINTS
1. Lord, destroy every evil spirit that makes some women to tear down their future by scattering the lives of their husbands and children.
2. Oh God, help our women who are pursuing frivolities (power, fashion, materialism, etc.), at the expense of the wellbeing of their homes, to realise their mistakes, before it's too late, and help them to be transformed, oh Lord.
3. Lord, help women to understand their roles in nation building, exemplarily, in Jesus' name.
EXTRA READING FOR TODAY: Nehemiah 8-10.
HAVE A WONDERFUL TIME IN HIS PRESENCE............... SHALOM
