Several things on my mind we can discuss.
But one that comes to me now as I remembered to bring up a poser is on work
Christians are admonished in the bible to work
The first instruction God gave Adam was to tend the garden which is to work
Why do some Christians feel comfortable begging instead of seeking to work and earn money to add value?
What is on my mind is
Marriage and divorce
Ok, and then let’s talk marriage and divorce
What about them?
Know lets discuss yours first
We can discuss mine tomorrow
Well, we may end up discussing both today; sure mine may not take us much time
What is your view on what I asked?
Understanding and also our environment
Our society today have made it difficult for people to work
How does our environment contribute?
Social security system
All of them are not favorable
But some other people are working na
You need to have the understanding and determination that you are a success
What is the percentage?
Compared to how many we churn out on a yearly basis from the universities
How many get admitted on a yearly basis
That eventually ends up in other things
How many dreams are dashed out there?
Because of basic needs
I mean that those who are working are working within the difficult situations
But it is our responsibility to change our environment
Why do we often allow it to influence us and become our excuse?
It is our responsibility
It’s your parent’s responsibility to carter for your upbringing
You remember how difficult it was for you growing up paying your fees in school
Many passed through same experience but are no more there today
So it’s the responsibility of the government to create an enabling environment
I think, but understanding makes you rise above those limitations
Knowing who you are you know ride on the word and Gods promises for us and download revelations
That’s why I am wondering
Because we are Christians
Government capacity and responsibility cannot be trusted any longer
just as I was not going to keep waiting for my family to pay my fees in school, but sought ways to ensure that I get educated
That way we ought to dig into our life and seek what can come out of it
Then God gives the increase
I think it has to begin with vision
Just look at it, which is more honorable: begging or doing ‘menial’ jobs?
Obviously in such a developing society like ours, for now we must rely on God to realize our dreams the much we can, not on the government
But we must take the right steps first
I think another issue is mental laziness
And also wrong preaching in some churches, removing responsibility from man
Making it appear as though God would just drop food from above
Corrective actions as Christians
But also remember in the other societies it’s not so
I am not endorsing anybody begging
But we are looking at the possible cause
And why people indulge in that
Yes, we have already acknowledged that our govt is not really doing their part
That is a long run solution
Until we have government that would fulfil its obligations to the people, which all of us must also contribute in making, we still have to do what we have to do
Yes that’s true
