Today slowly went by and really silent (from where I’m standing)about the celebration of the boy child, and I find it quite sad!
Even I forgot! If I hadn’t come across my Facebook memory post about it last year, It would have simply gone past me this year.
The same can’t be said about the day of the girl child celebration..
Now, don’t get me wrong..I’m not about to talk down on the fanfare that goes on with the girl child celebration
I just think in our bid to allow for gender equality, and with the rise of feminism, the male gender is becoming largely side tracked IMO.
And it shouldn’t be so…both genders should be given as much attention. If the male child begins to feel left out in the society, it may lead to behaviours that would spiral out of control in these boys that would ultimately become men.
The effects would boomerang and in turn affect the very fabric of the society we are trying to build into something sane and safe for women at large.
I guess what I’m saying in essence is, no child should be relegated regardless of his/her sex. Every child matter. Every child is special.
Happy international boys day to my boys and to other boys around the world!
Boys are precious and they become the men of tomorrow
It’s my prayer that God will help us parents to teach our sons well, to become Men after his own heart!
I pray for my sons and other sons around the world on this very beautiful day set aside to celebrate them that these scriptures from the Holy Bible be their guide as the grow up and navigate through life’s journey.
My son, forget not my law; but let thine heart keep my commandments:
Let not mercy and truth forsake thee: bind them about thy neck; write them upon the table of thine heart:
So shalt thou find favour and good understanding in the sight of God and man.
Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the Lord , and depart from evil. It shall be health to thy navel, and marrow to thy bones.
My son, despise not the chastening of the Lord ; neither be weary of his correction: My son, let not them depart from thine eyes: keep sound wisdom and discretion: So shall they be life unto thy soul, and grace to thy neck.
Then shalt thou walk in thy way safely, and thy foot shall not stumble. When thou liest down, thou shalt not be afraid: yea, thou shalt lie down, and thy sleep shall be sweet.
Be not afraid of sudden fear, neither of the desolation of the wicked, when it cometh.
For the Lord shall be thy confidence, and shall keep thy foot from being taken.
Proverbs 3:1, 3-8, 11, 21-26 KJV
Happy Sunday to you all dearly beloved of God!
