Stop 'tapping' from people's blessings - Catholic Priest warns Nigerians
Fr. Kelvin Ugwu, a Nigerian Catholic priest, has advised people to be proud of their legitimate hustle rather than be intimidated by the excessive display of wealth they see on social media.
In a Facebook post, a Malawian pastor advised people to be cautious of the blessings they tap into because others do fake things to gain money.
He advised people to be proud of their honest and upright work, regardless of how little money they made.
"The person you are envious of and tapping from her blessings because you saw her driving a Range Rover car might be sleeping with dogs to make money. The lady you are jealous of and asking God questions on why he is yet to bless you with estates and money might be a scammer like Ovaioza.
The guy, everybody in your village, is hailing, the one who brought G-wagon to the village, the same person you wish to even be his house boy because of the money he kept spraying, in any event, he is invited to might be a ritualist or an Internet fraudster.
You don't need to envy anyone or be jealous of anyone on this street. Don't look down on yourself and your labour simply because other people are posting pictures of being in posh places.
Take pride in your sincere and upright labour, no matter how little the income might be. As Galatians 6:4 says: but everyone is to examine his own achievements, and then he will confine his boasting to his own achievements, not comparing them with anybody else's."©Standard Gazette, 2021.
