She Was Raised A Shepherd

Key Verse

“And while he yet spake with them, Rachel came with her father’s sheep:  for she kept them” (Genesis 29:9).

Text — Genesis 29:1-12


Family ethics, skills and professions were of old time identity marks of clans. Industries like Coca-Cola have trended several decades as a family product and trademark. Parents train their children to take over hospitals, schools, farms because they have prospered by them. Do you show interest in your parents’ business, skill and professions? What will happen to the structures, plants and research records of your family? On this International Day of Women and Girls in Science, let us review Rachel her and career.

Rachel was peculiarly in a trade common then to the male gender. She was responsible for feeding, watering and taking care of her father’s flock as a happy professional. Gender is no longer a barrier to accessing most professions today, be it in science, technology, engineering, medicine, or space travels and exploration. Rachel’s beauty did not lure her into laziness and immoral beggarly lifestyle found in some ladies today.

Therefore if she could handle herds, both genders must rise up to the challenge to labour in whatever their hands find to do. You can also serve in any department in the Church ministry. God has given you talents and skills.


Gender is no longer a barrier


 Do not abandon your family’s valuable gifts.

Prayer for today

Holy Father guide me into the right occupation in Jesus’ name.
