Actor, Williams Uchemba urges those who spend lavishly to give to the poor
By Patricia Uyeh,
Nollywood actor, Williams Uchemba, who has been seeking to reduce the hardship of poor Nigerians has called on people to always help people in need instead of ‘wasting’ their resources on luxury items they barely need.
He offered this advice on Instagram as he continues his #givechallenge.
Here is what he wrote:
“Why should I spend 2m on drinks with friends in two hours when that money can set 3 people up for life and even send some kids to school..why should I spend 1.5m on a Gucci product or buy a fendi shoe of 800k(I will wear once or twice and want another one) when I can use it to get people without hope off the street…until we start to think less of ourselves and think more of people we CAN’T have a fulfilled life and a life of Purpose…I remember when all I wanted was a car many years ago after few months of driving that car I got bored it and wanted a new one, that’s what happens when you base life on material things…Alway learn to get what you NEED in life not the things you WANT because most of the things we want we don’t need …today am sending some kids that have been out of school back to school cos of school fees and I challenge you to do same today.
“HONOR GOD WITH YOUR INCOME( tithe and offers, and kingdom investment ) HONOR THE SERVANT OF GOD IN YOUR LIFE(honor and seed) AND BLESS THE POOR( because you are blessed to bless others) invest in people more that Material things and leave the rest for God.finally , if showing videos and pictures like this that inspires and challenges people to give around the worlds is called show off them I want to show off for the rest of my life #givechallenge”
