So, after the ‘mass slaughter’ of the chickens during Christmas and new year , can we take out time to learn a few Lessons from the HEN:
1.She first lays enough eggs before sitting on them: GOOD PLANNING.
2.When she starts sitting on her eggs, she minimises movement: DISCIPLINE.
3.She physically loses weight while sitting on her eggs due to decreased feeding: SACRIFICE and SELF DENIAL.
4.She can sit on eggs from another hen: INDISCRIMINATE and GENEROUS.
5.She sits on her eggs for 21 days, patiently waiting and even if they don’t hatch she will still lay eggs again: FAITH, HOPE and COURAGE.
6.She detects unfertilized eggs and rolls them out: SENSITIVE and DISCERNING.
7.She abandons the rotten eggs and starts caring for the hatched chicks even if it is only one: WISE, CONSCIOUS and REALISTIC.
8.No one can touch her chick: PROTECTIVE LOVE.
9.She gathers all her Chicken together: UNITY of PURPOSE.
10.She doesn’t abandon her chicks before they mature: MENTORING
Live your dreams, one day they shall hatch and you shall see them grow.
