A kind of Religion has emerged in Nigeria and its called laziness and mediocrity.
The Nigerian Pastor won’t talk about Usain Bolt or Serena Williams.
They won’t talk about late Dora Akunyili
The Nigerian pastor wont talk about late Steve Jobs or the young people in Silicon Valley reshaping our world.
They won’t talk about young American scientists spending endless hours in search of a cure to a disease that’s predominantly in the Tropical African region.
The Nigerian pastor won’t talk about Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie or Ben Okri.
In every corner of the world, there exist young men and women who have defiled all odds and became successful through hardwork, creativity and dedication and commitment …
The Nigerian pastor won’t talk about them……neither will he ask his members to emulate the spirit and drive of these individuals.
He would rather talk about sister Agatha who got a job she WAS NOT THE MOST QUALIFIED for because she prayed and fasted(though it isn’t wrong to fast and pray) in line with their church program.
Brother John who became a millionaire because he used all his salary as a seed(it isn’t wrong to sow) in the church.
Papa Miracle who he laid his hands on(this doesn’t mean that laying of hand is wrong) and 3 of his children got admission in the university
Mama Esther paid her tithe(this doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t pay your tithe) and her business started growing everywhere across the nation……no business plan, no strategy, no fesability, no customer analysis just *magic and boom* money everywhere.
This has led to a new breed of mentally lazy young people who now see God as a rewarder of mediocrity and laziness.
To the Nigerian Pastor,
the only way to prosperity is by paying your tithe and sowing seeds in the church. So they will never talk about those who have through hardwork, commitment and dedication placed theirselves on the world map.
No……the Nigerian God only blesses the first 30 people that rush to the altar to drop N100,000 as seed.
According to them,the Nigerian God abhors hardwork and creative thinking, He only gives to those who only sow seeds and offerings(pls it isn’t wrong to sow seeds)…and those who shout “I am a millionaire” every morning and does nothing the rest of the day.
You want God to come down and help you use the talent He gave you and bless you because you are going to church to shout “I receive it!”
