Pastor Enoch Adeboye of the General Overseer of The Redeemed Christian Church of God has emphasised on the importance of giving to God through tithes and offerings while encouraging graduating senior students at Redeemer’s University during the 15th convocation ceremony in Ede, Osun state.
According to Adeboye, who was represented at the venue by the Chairman of the School’s Board of Trustees, Pastor Olukaypde Pitman, God rewards those who give to him through tithes and offerings.
He said: “God is the rewarder, give to him your first fruit, tithe and offering; nothing can stop your prosperity.”
The clergy also advised the graduates not to be swayed by worldly distractions but to focus on their faith and contribute to building a prosperous nation.
“As you exit from the university, don’t allow the world and its lust to distract you to take the fear of God in you out; practice godliness,” he added.
“Be a lover of God and his word, and remember that all things answer to prayer if rightly done.”
In his conclusionessage, he urged them to remember their alma mater and trust in God for their prosperity.
