Lack of money can make you miss the Kingdom of God: Omokri

Lack of money can deprive people of their place in the Kingdom of God, author and lawyer Reno Omokri has said.

In a tweet on Friday, the former presidential aide suggested that an empty pocket could induce people into acts that have been prohibited by Scripture.

This is how he put it: “Lack of money can make you miss the Kingdom of God more than plenty of money. Scripture says thieves, liars, and fraudsters won’t make the Kingdom of God. Why do you think people steal, lie and defraud? It is mostly because of poverty, not prosperity.”

A few days ago, in an Instagram post, the 47-year-old had also said: “Before praying to God for prosperity, you need to demonstrate to Him that you have self-control. Because, if God prospers you in your present state, without self-control, you will just get money and excitedly buy something expensive that kills you.

“Always remember that the difference between who you are today and who you want to be tomorrow will be determined by what you do now.

“If you do the same things you did yesterday, tomorrow will come and meet you the same as today. No self-development means no wealth development.”
