The Scripture of our main text today is one of the most emotional and compassionate actions of Jesus, the Head of all husbands. I encourage every husband to do to his wife and children what Jesus did to the little children who came to him. The Bible tells us in (Mark 16: 16) … and he took them (children) up in his arms, put his hands upon them, and blessed themOh! What a way to be a father and leader! What a way to be a blessing to the led! God made you husband in order to be blessing to everyone within your fold; starting from yourself, your wife and children. Biblicallyyour wife and children are your flockThey are under you. God made it so. The government God formed was not a disorganized system without strataHe created order and offices and reporting mechanism. Iwould amaze you to know that He made you the head and by the privilege of the office you occupy, your wife and children need your hands of embrace and fellowship. Jesus exemplified this by carrying the young children on His lap and lifted them when they were to be driven awayHe went furtheand put His hands around them- there is a spiritual significance in putting your hands around your wife and children. First, it is a channel of communicating your inner expression. Secondly, it is a reminder to your flock that they are as useful to you as they were days before. Thirdly, it creates an inner craving in the hearts of your flock for your presence. Let me share with you how you can put your arms around your flock. When you wake up in the morning and as a custom, your children and other family members come to greet you, all you need to do is to open your arms wide and give them a warm embrace and as well bless them. When your wife wakes up in the morning or perhaps you have not seen her for a while may be because she just returned from trip, put your arms around her and bless her. If Jesus Christ, your perfect example of how husbands are expected to behave, did it to the little children why not do the same to your family members as the head of the household. Nothing should separate you from your flockNo circumstance or reason also should keep you far from themLet them feel your heartbeat, appreciate your warm embrace and compassion. Extending your inner goodwill to them and make them a blessing to the world.

SPIRITUAL EXERCISE

  • Father, deliver me from every spirit that will drive my flock away from me.

  • Father, teach me by Your Spirit to love my flock as You would love them.

  • Father, help my wife and children to feel my heartbeat as I embrace them.

FAITH CONFESSION:

will put my blessed hands around my flock as their spiritual head because I am sent to them to be a good and godly husband and father in Jesus mighty name. Amen.
