"I'm absolutely convinced my mother had eyes in the back of her head." Raise your hand if you affirm this statement.
"All of our brothers and my sister, I think we all agreed that she never missed a thing," says Dr. Steve Greene of his own mother on a recent episode of the Greenelines podcast on the Charisma Podcast Network, where he makes a spiritual connection for this almost universal mom-trait. "She could be in a Walmart shopping aisle and know that somebody had their hands in the cookie jar.
"I never really understood how she knew what she knew," he continues. "But I felt like she had that ability to discern, and to know what was going on in her kitchen, for that matter. In her house, in our backyard, wherever we went. Mom could see us with eyes in the back of her head. She didn't have to ask us any questions; she knew before we told her."
Greene adds that his wife exhibited this same characteristic when she became a mother and woke up five or 10 minutes before the baby cried. "She had a sense of knowing that one of her children was in trouble, one of her children needed something," he says.
In a similar way, Greene says, "We can't hide anything from the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit reveals all that which is trying to be hidden. The more we try to hide a thing, the more it's revealed."
Leaders can learn from this, Greene says, by allowing the Holy Spirit to teach them. "Leaders need a sense of discernment to be able to know what they need to know about a decision that needs to be made."
