- Mensa Otabil has asked young people, especially ladies to be prudent and not waste time on old men
- Otabil's sermon comes on the back of actress Moesha Boduong's statement to the BBC on sex and love
The founder and general overseer of the International Central Gospel Church (ICGC), International Central Gospel Church (ICGC) Pastor Mensa Otabil has urged the youth to make good use of their opportunities and potentials in times of abundance.
Preaching on the topic ‘Abundance’, Pastor Otabil said there will be years of scarcity as predictable as the years of abundance.
The motivational speaker went on to use young beautiful lady analogy, saying a lot of ladies become very silly in their youth when they have abundance of beauty and make very silly mistakes about their future.
“Abundance comes, maybe when you have abundance of beauty. …Sometimes you see an 18-year-old, 19-year-old, 20-year-old young lady going out with a 55-year-old man. You have abundance of beauty, but you are not harnessing your moment well because one of these days, you’ll be 35[-years-old] and at 35, you’d realise: ‘Wow, I wasted my time on that old man!’ Now every young man who should have married you, thinks you are old, used, and discarded. That’s when people [ladies] start going to church, worshipping, fasting and praying and hoping that God will turn things around.”
“Abundance becomes abundance of strength, abundance of beauty, abundance of job opportunities – when you have so much, people are giving you jobs or abundance of time, when you are young, you have so much time, or abundance of popularity. Don’t ever deceive yourself that the years of abundance will be forever. There will be a year of scarcity as predictable as the years of abundance are,” he warned.
Pastor Otabil also advised young people to use prudently, whatever they have in abundance to cushion themselves against the days of scarcity.
“Don’t be wasteful; don’t spend all your money on perishable and depreciating commodities – spending money buying cars, buying clothes, which devalue over time, and not appreciate in value. Be wise,” he urged.
