Prophet T.B. Joshua in his Christmas message has revealed the cause of poverty in the world today.
“The beauty of life does not depend on how happy you are but on how happy others can be because of you,” Joshua began in a somber statement he released to Facebook.
Reading from 1 Corinthians 13:13, he further explained, “The manner you love your neighbour determines the measure of your relationship with God.”
“You are rich but you are still complaining – as if you have nothing… You have money yet unanswered questions in your life. You are a president but anytime you are in private, you cry for what you do not have.''
“Possessions do not bless when we keep them. Money does not bless when we keep them in the safe but giving them to help the poor, needy, refugees and others, can. We use money to get what we need but when we keep it, it becomes dormant as if we do not have,” Joshua wrote.
“The cause of poverty and hardship is because we have not been giving to help others. We keep our possessions and save our money. We say there is not money but money is everywhere. The cause of poverty is because our money is not being circulated.”
He concluded his teaching saying;
“You are blessed to bless others but you are blessed and not blessing others – that is the cause of poverty. Therefore, build your life around your contribution to others, for that is the beauty of life,” he said.
