The Senior Pastor of TK herinewse church, Lawrence Onochie, on Christmas day, disguised himself as a beggar to the church and his church members snubbed him.
Onochie who sat in the middle of the congregation was ignored by members of his church when, it was announced that each brethren should invite someone they didn’t know in the church to spend Christmas with them.
Insnewsram user, Onome (@Onome_tsd) who witnessed and shared the story, on her page expressed that no one came to her pastor because no one wanted to be identified with a beggar.
My pastor, the senior pastor of @tkherinewse, @lawrenceonochie was in the congregation today dressed like a nonentity, a nobody, a beggar and no one recognized him. When the call was made to invite someone they didn’t know to spend #Christmas with them. No one came to him, no one invited him because no one wanted to identify with him.
That’s the world we live in. We relate to those we feel are in the same social class with us and despise the needy, the hungry and extend help only to those who already have. That’s not what Christmas/Christianity is about. It is about caring for those in need, strangers, the despised.
Change your heart today and focus on what matters and what counts. Ask your self what would God do? Will God despise you when you are hungry, when you need shelter, when you are lonely, when you are sick?
People matter to God, let people also matter to you. Stop to help a stranger, put a smile on someone’s face. Christianity is not a talk. It is in the doing.
Merry #christmas #love #care #sharing
Who would you be? The one who invites a beggar home or the one who ignores a beggar?
