Does it really take a village to raise a child? In days gone by we knew for sure that this was true indeed!
Its time to heal your own wounds. Nelson Mandela reminded us in 1993 that , "there are countless people who went to jail and aren't bitter at all, because they can see that their sacrifices were not in vain, and the ideas for which we lived and sacrificed are about to come to fruition. And that removes the bitterness from their hearts."
You can't be a servant until you're at peace with who you are. You can pretend to be a servant but its all useless without love. Those you pretend to be helping truly do not want or even need your help because;
Heal your wounds! Go to him who's yoke is easy! Let him teach you and direct you to the ways of tender love. Only then can you be a truthful, trustworthy and loving servant of your master. Hurting people hurt other people thus only deprivation and dysfunction resides in their heart, soul and soul.
"That profound African sense that we are human only through the humanity of other human beings -is not a parochial phenomenon, but has added globally to our common search for a better world." Nelson Mandela
Family can make or break a child. It is the responsibility of every human being on earth to reach out and embrace children who are in dire need. Motherhood and fatherhood goes far beyond DNA. All that matters to a child is love, connectedness and protection.
Their love is so infectious, it makes us flourish. Joy is a great source of inspiration. It affords one a second chance in life, this is the reason Jesus blessed us and said we must rejoice with unspeakable joy.
