This weekend is mother’s day and we just want to share a few pointers that will encourage all mothers and mother’s to be.
Pointers are simply indicators that help you know if you’re on the right path in your journey.
Few years ago, I stumbled across a great mother in the bible – Jochebed; whose story I want to share today.
Jochebed was the mother of the famous Moses in the bible, but it didn’t end there. She was also the mother of Aaron and Miriam; the three children were instrumental to the success of their generation. They helped the Israelites in leaving Egypt and crossing over to the Promised Land.
Usually we can have one  outstanding child doing exploits in their field of workbut to have three  children doing exploits in their different fields is rare, and for each one to support the other in achieving their dream/purpose is quite unusual too.
What then made Jochebed’s story different?
That’s what I want to share today; the few pointers I gleaned from studying Jochebed and I hope it blesses you as it did me.
- CHOICE of a life partner – she was married to a man with the same value system as hers. Every woman while making a choice of a life partner, must remember or put into consideration what the future will look like; will your choice of a life partner help you both in achieving purpose for yourselves and the children you will bring into this world? [Ex 2:1]
- SENSITIVE – Jochebed was an intelligent woman who was sensitive to her environment and studied the times and seasons. She hid her son till, she felt it was okay to bring him out.
As mother’s we need to be sensitive to our environment; know what is going on around you and guide your children accordingly. We as mothers are blessed with intuition; use it! Pray, read, learn, study and be abreast of what is going on in your environment [Ex 2:2-3]
