The Bestselling Author, Human Right Activist and Former Special Assistant to Ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, Pastor Bemigho Reno Omokri, has revealed that avoiding people who cause divisions and offences is never the same as hating them.
Reno Omokri, who through his verified Facebook account, claimed that life is too short to spend with people who doesn't matter.

The pastor of Mind of Christ Christian Center, backed his claim with a Bible quotation from New Testament's book, the Romans. He reminded his followers that no one has abundance of life to spend on earth, and for that reason, people should learn how to avoid anyone that distracts their purpose of living, especially people with negative mindset.
According to him: "Life is short. You don’t have the luxury of time to wait for people with bad attitudes to adjust their attitudes. Once you notice someone has attitude issues, quietly avoid them. Read Romans 16:17 “MARK them which cause divisions and offences and AVOID them”. It is not that you hate the person. No, no, no!"
"You are an ice cube that is melting. Very soon you will be all melted. You do not have the luxury of time. Anything that is detracting you from your purpose is like heat. If you put ice next to heat, it will melt faster. Avoid negative people so you can have a positive life". He wrote.

Looking at what Reno Omokri said, you will see that it is very important for people to know the kind of persons they associate with. Just like some adage said; "iron sharpens iron", "show me your friend and I will tell you who you are", etc. If you mingle with people of negativity, your life will likely attract negativity, and vise versa when you keep people of positivity in your life.
That was another great one from the former presidential spokesperson, Reno Omokri. Just like he said, be mindful of those you keep as friends.
