I greet and bless every one of you in the Mighty name of our Lord Jesus Christ. The Blessed word that the Lord has given for you today is from the book of 1 Timothy 5:4, “ if any widow has children or grandchildren, let them first learn to show piety at home and to repay their parents; for this is good and acceptable before God.”
From the above context we see how in those days there was no social assistance system from the government. As a result elderly widows, who were usually without support from husbands, were left on their own without means to adequately support themselves or their grown up children. God expects us to do good to others. You should learn to do what is good and pleasing unto the Lord. While Jesus lived on the face of this earth He went about doing well. He desires that we also should do well to others, especially to the widows and the fatherless.
If parents do good to others then their children will also learn from their parents to do good to others. And when they do good to others, God will be pleased with them. Many of you who are reading this message must have done good to please your husband, wife, children or any other persons. But have you pleased God? If you want to please God then you ought to do many good deeds to others. You need to help the poor the down trodden, those who are old and desperate, those who are widows and widowers. God expects you to introduce those in the ministry to the poor and needy that they may be blessed. You need to guide the helpless in the ways of God so that not only they, but you also shall be blessed by bringing them to the saving Knowledge of God. When you do that which is pleasing unto the Lord then He will help you inherit the Land property that is due unto you. He will release you from the court case. He will give you that job which you are looking for into your hand. God will give you that project which you are longing for, so that you may be successful.
In case you have not done any good deed to others until today, learn to do good deeds, in order that God might be pleased with you. Do good things that are pleasing unto God. Then God will hasten to do good deeds for you and your children. The Bible says, “Will God say and not do it? He is not a man that He should lie. God shows no partiality. He will not be a debtor to others.
Beloved know that the Lord is always watching you, carefully and observing all the good you are doing for the benefit of your children. He knows your struggles, your wanderings to do good for your children, the tears that you have shed, in order to give your children sound education, good employment and also to have met all their deeds, so that they might live in the society with praise and fame, and lack no good thing. Your children will never be put to shame. No one will criticize them for any reason, or provoke them to anger. Rather they will be appreciated and respected in the society. Since you have sacrificed your life for the welfare of your children, God will in turn cause your children to recollect your good deeds to them and help them repay good deeds to those of you who are single. Halleluiah! God tells this through me, prophetically as a promise and assurance that you will be blessed in the latter part of your life, for having been good to your children and your grandchildren. God Bless you.
Prayer: Our Loving Heavenly Father, we thank you for this blessed day. Lord teaches us to do good deed to others. Help us to consider the poor and the needy, the widow and the fatherless Lord. We thank You for assuring us of Your blessing to single parents. Help us to see better days according to the days we have seen evil. Multiply our joy and grant us peace. Bless our children in their work place, in their family life. Exalt them in the society that others may see Christ through their wellbeing.
