I was born in China. Ever since I left my hometown for my studies when I was thirteen, I have been living away from my parents in a relative’s home in Singapore. Whenever I call my mother, she repeatedly asks me the same question:
“How’s your school life?” “Are you eating well?” “Do you drink milk every day?” “What about fruit?” “Do you jump rope or swim regularly?”
I always say yes to her questions without any hesitation. It is because I know very well that if I don’t answer her yes, she would give me a long lecture. Actually, I do not care much about eating and I hardly do exercise, either.
Sometimes, even before she asks me, I say to her archly, “Yes, mom I eat well, drink milk and have fruit as well. And I do exercise, too.” Then she laughs and says, “You already know what I am going to say. If you are not in good health, you can’t do anything well,” and she hangs up.
Even though I answer absent-mindedly whenever my mother asks me those questions out of concern for me, I do know how great her love is for me – the words that she would repeatedly say to me thousands of times show how much she loves me. She is always concerned about me because she knows very well that I am not so diligent and do not care much about my health, either.
It is the same with the words that Heavenly Mother gives me. Her words are always the same. To me, who responds to Her carelessly, out of habit, She says to me again:
“You have to study the Word diligently.” “It is more blessed to give love than to receive.” “The glory of heaven will be given to you soon, so endure just a little bit more.”
Now I will respond to Mother with a sincere heart and put Her words into action without fail.
“Yes, Mother! I will be a good daughter to You in the World Mission Society Church of God (WMSCOG) so that I can be spiritually healthy and worthy enough to enter the kingdom of heaven.”
