Sleep, wake up and see things changed for good

29 September 2014, 21:33 Jibunor George Chuks

As we all know, life is a journey which has its different paths. Which ever way you choose to follow will determine where you'll end up at the end. Though troubles and challenges of life are sometimes very frustrating and devastating. Like they say; 'To be a man is not a day job'. But then, many men are still sleeping while they are waiting for the story of their family to change for good.

Gone are the days when manna falls from Heaven. Most problems of today in the country are problems from different homes. Don't quote me wrong, because I will give examples to back this up, all for our elaborate understanding. There was a certain man, who prefers to sleep while he watch's his wife and children go to farm. But anytime food is ready, he must be the first person to position for meal. He is always afraid to go to farm alone, because of laziness. Many men, choose to give birth to many children. How do you choose to enjoy making babies but can not reason and plan on how to bring them up and provide basic things that they need. Millions of youths and children roaming the streets and corners of cities, villages and towns.

You know, we create more problems than we provide solutions. A child that was brought up in a proper way can never end up as a tout, who will not reason even in a given second and decides to terminate another man's life. A prayer of a lazy man to God; is to sleep, wake up and see things change for good. But other hustling men, are out there calculating, sorting and making plans on how tomorrow will look out for them. They pray and ask God to bless the work of their hands. You can't just prepare to born or make children without planning for their up bringing. Is better not to have than to have touts and criminals who only are there to torment neighbours and create fear in the society. Make your homes a perfect one and you will enjoy what it takes to have a happy home. Just as the same example will transform our society. Government will not teach you how to prepare yourself as a man, its an individual thing. God bless us.
