Ghanaians especially the youth have been advised to eschew dubious means of attaining wealth. The advice was given by Reverend Dr. Kwadwo Boateng Bempah of the Holy Hill Assemblies of God Church who has advised Ghanaians, especially the youth. He said they should embrace hard work and diligence, which were able to produce long-lasting success.
“Today, many people are eager to become rich overnight. They do not want to go through the mill and pass-through life’s processes. They cut corners, dupe unsuspecting victims and rid people of their wealth. Wealth obtained through ill-means never lasts long”, he said.
Rev. Bempah was speaking on the topic: “Breaking the curse of poverty and debt cancellation.”
He quoted from Proverbs 28:20, saying, “A faithful person will be richly blessed, but one eager to get rich will not go unpunished.” “Shady business will lead you into more poverty. Those who are rich today didn’t attain it in a day. They went through the stages and God taught them valuable lessons.
Stealing and taking someone’s property will not prosper you. When you go through the stages you learn a lot and it humbles you”, he said. He advised them to be wary of the friends they kept because that could influence their life and alter their decisions.
“Friendship is not by force; it is by choice,” Rev Bempah added.
