Task #12 for the Single Ladies
Today you got home very tired from church – You hadn't stopped for one minute! It couldn’t have been any other way...
You helped to clean the auditorium, the bathroom, you participated of the meeting and even had time to evangelize before it began…
The only thing you want now is to shower and get a good night’s sleep!
You get home, your family is in the living room and you pass right by them since all you can think about is a shower and bed.
Very well my friends, we are going to cover an extremely important issue today!
Many young girls feel great pleasure in doing things in church and if possible, they would spend the entire day there but they forget that they need to give a good testimony at home!
You are capable of helping a lot at church, but incapable to help your mother at home?
I ask you, what good is it?
Many young girls nowadays are missing out on the opportunity to save souls in their own homes because they haven’t been giving a good testimony.
When at home all they want to do is rest and regain their strength so that they can give their all at church.
Friends, the Lord Jesus sees all of this!
The result is that your parent’s will revolt against the church and begin to impede you from attending!
We must be examples wherever we are, for that is our testimony!
Perhaps your mother is overburdened but you don’t move a muscle to help her!
This has to change my friend.
Is it your dad who does things around the house? That's even worse! You should take on that responsibility.
I know that this can be a burden at times, but its part of your sacrifice!
I just finished serving dinner, I feel very tired, but since I live with other people I had to sacrifice and clean up the kitchen before writing this post.
It’s 1 in the morning here and I could very well use this as an excuse not to write or clean up the kitchen… but that’s when my testimony kicks in, you understand?
“This very day you are going to change the situation and begin to give a good testimony at home.
If possible, talk to your mother about tasks that you can take over. Here are a few suggestions in case you don’t know where to start.
- Prepare dinner for the family.
- Wash your family’s clothes, not just your own. If you have a big family, divide the task with your mum.
- Thoroughly clean your entire home at least once a week, not just your room.
- Iron your family’s clothing.
- Prepare lunch.
- Clean out the fridge at least once a week.
- Clean the kitchen cupboard and cabinets.
- Clean the windows.
- Make your bed as soon as you wake up every day.
- Maintain your bedroom organized and neat always.
- Keep your wardrobe tidy.
These are only a few examples… and please, don’t do anything with a sour face or complaining because it will defeat the purpose!
Once you put this into practice, then and only then, will things begin to change.”
