Christians have been urged to always appreciate the goodness of God with thanksgiving.
Rev. Fr. Vincent Uwaka made the call on Sunday in his homily at a birthday thanksgiving Mass for Delta state commissioner for lands and urban development, Chika Ossai at St. Peter’s Catholic Church, Iselegu, Ndokwa east local government area of Delta state.
According to the Priest, “God has given you all that you have, so, thank Him with the best that you can, thank Him always.”
He added, “for your thanksgiving to be accepted by God, you must reconcile yourself with God; it is not enough to thank God, let your heart be closer to God.”
Rev. Fr. Uwaka also, admonished Christians to avoid occasions of sin by taking the right decisions at all times.
“Let us learn to make the right choice, it may not be the best choice but, be interested in making the right choice,” he emphasised.
Hon. Ossai in an interview said, it was important to give thanksgiving to God.
“It is important that we thank God for the gift of life, all that we are, all that we have belongs to God,” Hon. Ossai said, adding, “I thank those God has used to impact on my life, especially, our Governor, Senator Dr Ifeanyi Okowa who has done a lot to change the lives of Deltans, we should continuously pray for him and support him with what we have for His administration to succeed till 2023.”
