- A pastor has called on people who attribute their success solely to God's grace to stop
- The pastor noted that the attribute of God's grace alone removes the element of their hard work
- Pastor Poju Oyemade explained that this kind of behaviour would prevent others from learning from their success
The senior pastor of Covenant Christian Centre, Pastor Poju Oyemade, has taken time to school people on attributing their success solely to God's grace.
According to Pastor Poju, someone saying they were only successful due to the grace of God creates a religious mindset that denies others the opportunity to learn from them.
He explained that in this sense, they have noted that all they have achieved was done without doing anything because God just gave them the grace to achieve it. He noted that the element of hard work and strategies would disappear.
The pastor expressed that what should be said in cases like this is that one has become successful by making the right decisions and God's grace had taught them how to make these decisions.
He said: "Truth is, his longevity is really because of certain wise choices he made. What he should have said was 'Yes, I remain relevant because I made the right moves some of which I will share however it was God's grace that taught me these things without which I won't have known them'."
According to him, saying it was by God's grace alone was indirectly saying that you got lucky while others did not.
Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za had reported that the general overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye, had advised young single ladies on one major thing to do when they are thinking of settling down.
