Muhammad Ali’s advice to his daughters…………..Inspiring
An incident transpired when Muhammad Ali’s daughters arrived at his home wearing clothes that were quite revealing.
Here is the story as told by one of his daughters:
“When we finally arrived, the chauffeur escorted my younger sister, Laila, and me up to my father’s suite. As usual, he was hiding behind the door waiting to scare us. We exchanged many hugs and kisses as we could possibly give in one day.
My father took a good look at us. Then he sat me down on his lap and said something that I will never forget. He looked me straight in the eyes and said, “Hana, everything that God made valuable in the world is covered and hard to get to.
Where do you find diamonds? Deep down in the ground, covered and protected.
Where do you find pearls? Deep down at the bottom of the ocean, covered up and protected in a beautiful shell.
Where do you find gold? Way down in the mine, covered over with layers and layers of rock.
You’ve got to work hard to get to them.”
He looked at me with serious eyes. “Your body is sacred. You’re far more precious than diamonds and pearls, and you should be covered too.”
Inspiring advice, this reminds me of the ideal woman the bible talks about in Proverbs 31
She is very hard to find, men must dig(search) & dig & be patient & dig & trust in God so He will bring her at the right time.
I’ll give you a taster of what she is like:
“Strength & HONOUR are her clothing, she shall rejoice in time to come. She opens her mouth with wisdom, and her tongue is the law of kindness” Proverbs 31:25-26
