Whenever this word “Christmas” is pronounced to the notice of millions of people all over the world and when the year enters into the 9th quarter of the month, which starts with september, what comes to the minds of individuals are of many thoughts!
Some it is a time to buy cars which they will use to pose so that friends and neighbors will know that they have arrived. Some a time to build house or renovate old one. Some on how dubious they could be in other to make sure they have a whole lots of cash to spend. For business men and women, it is a time for them to make up for all their lost throughout the year, so increment in their commodities is the payout. Oil marketers, it is a time for fuel hike and only them could term it “scarcity of fuel”.
Transporters, oh my God, it is a blessed period of time in the year for them. Whereby many drivers tends to run speed on the highways in other to do turnovers in a day. Well, i could say most of all this is very ok but not too necessary compare to what we have not think of. You ask? How many people sits down to check and figure out the good deeds of which they failed to exercise in the course of the year? Few, if there is any at all.
For politicians, it is a time to dupe for more money so as to have a nice celebration for their families. Some government personals who likes to show up! It is a time to forcefully and act of pretends, tends to visit the orphanage homes with some few items of food and clothing, with their camera men who could record and send it to media houses so that the general publics could shower praises on them. But tell me, where have they been since all this period of time to have done that? Busy doing nothing if i must say.
Armed robbery cases is highly perpetuated, because most youths tends to be under pressures from their parents, friends, pair groups, most especially their girlfriends and their pair groups because they want to impress them at all cost! Why? I still wonder how people can steal and pretend to be happy with a stolen wealth. Many steal to go and donate to their churches in the village. Christmas, is for Christ! But we fail to come clean so as to welcome the about to born king who we claim to celebrate on that period of time
. How i wish many that read this right now could pass this message across to the world so that the celebration of this great man who is called Jesus Christ could be with a pure heart. May His coming and His celebration bring us peace, love, justice and pure rule of leadership as to serve not to be served in our country Nigeria. God bless us. .
