'Pastor Adeboye is getting increasingly carried away by vanity' - Femi Aribisala

Article written by Femi Aribisala. Read below
“I have houses in at least 188 countries in the world, so I am richer than Bill Gates.” (Adeboye).
Recently, a friend took me to the jewel-in-the-crown of the Redeemed Christian Church of God; a glitzy parish called “City of David” in Victoria Island, Lagos. Displayed resplendently on a wall in the church-office is a design of their current building project; a 14 storey architectural extravaganza titled “Trinity Towers.”
Is Redeemed still a church or is it now essentially a business concern? The Trinity Towers project shows the lines are now totally blurred. Jesus warns: “No one can serve two masters. You cannot serve both God and Money.” (Matthew 6:24). Nevertheless, this Tower of Babylon being built with church funds is designed both for the worship of God and for the worship of money.

I'm richer than Bill Gates - Pastor Adeboye

My thoughts this morning, be inspired

Irrespective of what yesterday might be like, this beautiful morning has a message which says: "wake up dear friend, and do it once again". Little did you realize the failure of yesterday has taken you several steps forward. Have you ever noticed, one hit can't break a rock. 

President Buhari mustn't have been the number 1 citizen of this great country today, if he had given up at his 3rd attempt as a failure. He said in a recent speech:
....subsequent life of hard work, endurance and perseverance. "I contested for president three times and failed," he said. "Then I did it the fourth time and won."
Do you know the pillars of your challenge is getting shaky each time you try? Get up with a smile and say to yourself "I can do it".
