Stop Comparing Your Children, Husbands With Others, UACC President Warns Mothers

-As Church’s Women Conference Ends In Ibadan

Women have been warned on the dangers inherent in comparing their children and husbands with others as a result of their socio- economic and educational status or family background.

The President and General Overseer of the United Apostolic Church of Christ (UACC) Worldwide, Rev’d (Dr) James Bayo Owoyemi gave the warning at the Thanksgiving Service of the 2024 UACC Women’s Conference, themed: “Mothers Of The Mighty” held at the Oke-Ola, Moniya, Ibadan branch of the church on Sunday

The cleric who urged women to desist from such behavior, pointed out that it has negative impact on the family as it serves as source of hindrance to prayers being answered.

Rev’d Owoyemi who took his text from 2nd Corinthians 10: 12, said it’s unwise of any parent to compare his or her child with other child as every child has his or her own glory and destiny to fulfill in life.

” Every child is unique and each of them carries a glory which does not need to compete with each other

” My advice for you mothers is that your children are mighty personalities and carries great glory, comparing your child with another will prevent the manifestation of the glory of God in your own lives”, he stressed

He pointed out that apart from the fact that it hinders the manifestation of God’s glory, indulging in such acts can also bring about life threatening health challenges that may eventually deny parents from enjoying the fruits of their labour.

The four – day conference which commenced on Thursday was attended by women from the ministry in the south west states, Kwara, Rivers and Abuja

In her remarks, the Chairperson, UACC Pastors Wives Association, Rev’d Mrs Ajoke Mary Owoyemi expressed appreciation to God for the success of the conference while also thanking all members who had contributed in one way or the other towards ensuring a hitch- free conference

She however, admonished the participants to let all that has been learned during the conference, reflect in their family lives on daily basis.

The programme featured award presentation to deserving women who have impacted positively the lives of women and children in the ministry and the society at large

They include, the Grand Matron of the UACC, Rev’d Dr (Mrs ) Victoria Olorunyomi, Iya Ijo of the church, Mrs Felicia Ayandeji JP , Mrs Agnes Adekanmbi, Mrs Olowolayemo Ajoke, Mrs Juliana Jegede and Pastor (Mrs) Grace Kolawole

Other highlights of the conference include, praise and worship, prayer sessions, workshop, empowerment programme, health talk and bible quiz competition among others.
