The recent report by #cno that Baba Ajose has been abandoned at a hospital in New York USA over an undisclosed ailment that he has been battling with since last year has raised a lot of concern by both the clergy and the laity family
It has once again reiterated the call for a better welfare package by the leadership of the church for shepherds.
It is so disheartening to see shepherds languishing in abject poverty at old age after giving the church their best during their youthful age. Most times, after the demise of some shepherds the children will be on the run for their lives and some will be living in the parish like beggars.
Shepherds too need to plan for their future and have a retirement plan for themselves. They shouldn’t live their lives at the mercy of members and the church leadership.
Prophet Kingsley Ataifo of Oneness in Christ Ministry has joined in the call for shepherds to also plan for their future. Below is an excerpt of advice he gave on the CNO Nation Whatsapp platform to shepherds:
“Train your children. Empower them. After their first degree, let them proceed to acquire Master’s Degrees. Those people that God has used you for let them also know you have children. If it’s easy to help former politicians’ children, it’s also easy to help good pastors or shepherds’ children.
Empower your children with the money you have saved while in the vineyard. Even if you know your children have a ministerial calling, still empower them.
Don’t spend all you have. Save money, don’t give all your money to concubines, please save. You can venture into the bakery business and sachet water business. You can also invest in candle making or even real estate. Planning for your future working for God is not a license to be stupid.
If you start marrying many wives just know that you are creating a disaster for yourself in the future. Invest and plan for your future”
Dear Shepherds, if you know that your lives truly matter, then start planning for your future. The time to start planning is now. Remember, you can only make hay only one when it’s sunlight.
