Parental Blessings

PARENTAL BLESSINGS: Obedient is better than sacrifice....and there's a reward for every good deed.

Once upon a time, in “AMAOKORO” Village, there was a man named Mazi Ibekwe who attained fame due to his workaholic nature in the community. He was blessed with five children. His children were not left out of their father’s fame in the Village due to the fact they emulated their father’s honest and workaholic nature.

Among his five children, Mazi Ibekwe loves his first daughter Nwakaego so much due to her exceptional character in the family and farm work. Nwakaego never allowed her parents to remind her of house chores, and she did all her work at the appropriate time without being persuaded to.

These exceptional qualities of Nwakaego made her father’s favorite, and He blessed her before kicking the bucket. In his sick bed, Mazi Ibekwe called his daughter Nwakaego one Sunday evening and told her to kneel down and receive his blessings because of her obedience and hard work towards the family and encouraged her to keep it up as long as she lived.

My daughter may God bless you with; 

Maize Ibekwe: Good health

Nwakaego: Amen

Maize Ibekwe: Long life

Nwakaego: Amen

Maize Ibekwe: Provide for you in time of needs

Nwakaego: Amen

Maize Ibekwe: None of your children will die prematurely

Nwakaego: Amen

Maize Ibekwe: None of your children will cause you pain

Nwakaego: Amen

Maize Ibekwe: Your children will be a blessing to your family and society at large

Nwakaego: Amen

Nwakaego, after receiving the blessings from her father, promised not to disappoint him and also to thank her father for the prayers and blessings.
