“Some of us in the name of 21st century parenting don’t spank our children“. These were the words of the founder of KingsWord International Church, Dr Kayode Ijisesan during his ministration at the church’s Apostolic centre in Lagos today.
Dr. Kayode Who was charging congregants ahead the ministry’s annual convention, (Supernatural 2017) themed ‘Eagles’ Wings, no ordinary flight’ which kicked off today said that most parent have over-stressed the importance of education and have sent their children away from the anointing.
Speaking on the essence of the anointing on the upbringing of children, Reverend Kayode said parent often get extra teachers for their children but getting someone who will lecture them on the things of the spirit, is often not regarded.
While speaking he interjected, commenting about parents who send their children to study in farther places abroad without proper spiritual covering arrangement for them there.
“The money you got from the anointing shouldn’t be used to send your children away from it”
Going back to the theme of the convention which was the foundation from which the charge was established, Reverend Kayode stressed.
“You need to see how an eagle trains its eaglet. It releases the eaglet to the ground to fall and catches it again”
With this he said that the eagle trains it’s eaglet how to fly and more, for the hard days ahead.
Noting the way many parents were brought up under very tough condition and yet succeeded, Reverend Kayode added.
“Some of you when you were Sixteen-year-old, you were able to handle life adversity as though you were forty-year-old”.
He finally summated his teaching by telling the congregation that what makes the eagle stands out among other birds are the things it feeds on. He then charged the congregants to spend time in the word of God to have a great flight on life.
