Editor: Welcome to the year 2018. 2017 has gone into history and would not return. I take this opportunity to wish everyone a productive and peaceful year. Let us pray that this year would be a peaceful one and that we would not encounter the many killings that took place last year.
As a people, it is important that we work together to build this nation. As a people, may we seek to put aside our political differences that have divided us so much and see each other as one?
Yes, we would all have differences in opinions, but politicians are humans; they cannot totally solve the problems of mankind. They, too, as humans, would fail. So, when we pull down and create enemies because of party politics, we are only hurting ourselves and one another.
You see, when politicians have gone, we would all still remain. Today, someone may be your comrade and tomorrow, he may be on the other side of the political fence and similarly, he may be your political opponent and tomorrow, you both may be in the same political party. Thus, we need to respect each otherâs view and choice and work together.
Let us, in this year, lift our standard spiritually. Let us move from being simply religious to having a relationship with Christ, where we love the LORD from our heart. For when we love the LORD, we would love each other.
Let Proverbs 3: 5&6, which states, âTrust in the Lord with all thine heart and lean not unto thine own understanding, but in all thy ways acknowledge him and he will direct thy path,â be our guide this year. Let us, as a people, be more occupied with Christ and pleasing him.
May God bless us all.
