‘Life is not a race’ pastor advises youth
Pastor Samson Glory Abbey of the Mega Kharis Ministries has advised the youth to tread cautiously in life because life is not a race.
According to him the current crop of youth had talents which they should develop gradually and make good use of them at the right time.
Preaching a sermon on the theme “There is No Lost Time in God” on Sunday at Adentan in Accra, the Man of God urged church leaders to teach the youth to understand their personal or self development in the professional environment.
“Be patient in this life for nothing is impossible in the eyes of God, but only trust in Christ for your life.
“Let us teach our children to understand how to seize Godly opportunities offered to them in order to boost their career and set the financial benefits they are expecting and they will stop killing themselves for quick money” he said.
Quoting from Joshua 14:11, Ephesians 5; 16 and Colossians 4:5 Paster Abbey said that the mystery of life was dependent on God’s promises and when God’s time arrived, all things changed for the better so the youth should allow Christ to control their lives.
He urged the youth to take time in life because it was not a race but they should always wait for the right opportunities before they acted because “whoever rushes in life never gets to its end on a good note.”
He said that there were no lost or wasted time or years for those whose lives were dependent on Christ because there were many examples in the Bible of those who lived for God and enjoyed in their old age than in their youthful age.
Pastor Abbey said that, the youth needed such teachings because all their talents were hidden in them but needed only a small push, or motivation to change something in their lives else they would continue to live in this vicious circle of get-rich-quick syndrome.
