Staying poor because you love God is not humility, it is stupidity – Reno Omokri

Former Nigerian presidential aide, Reno Omokri has shared his thoughts about people especially Christians choosing to stay poor because of their love for God.

According to the renowned author, doing that doesn’t mean the person is humble adding that it shows how stupid the person is.

He made this known in a recent post he made on his verified social media handle on the popular social media platform, Twitter.

Any Man Who Weeps Because A Girl Left Him Is A ‘Weak’ Man — Reno Omokri

The post he made reads;

“Staying poor because you love God is not humility. It is stupidity. God wants you to help the poor. That is why He made you and put you here. Having money increases your ability to help people. Yes, the poor need prayers. But they need payers even more. Be a payer.”

STAYING POOR BECAUSE YOU LOVE GOD IS NOT HUMILITY. IT IS STUPIDITY. GOD WANTS YOU TO HELP THE POOR. THAT IS WHY HE MADE YOU AND PUT YOU HERE. HAVING MONEY INCREASES YOUR ABILITY TO HELP PEOPLE. YES, THE POOR NEED PRAYERS. BUT THEY NEED PAYERS EVEN MORE. BE A PAYER#RENOSNUGGETS

Some reactions the post got are;

@EBagiri – You are absolutely right sir.. I feel ashamed when ever I’m unable to help the poor.. that’s why I have decided to keep pushing till I’m able to help without looking or thinking twice.. and affiliate marketing is taking me to that level soon

@AfiaAniebiet – Abraham, Isaac, Jacob etc where all VERY rich yet still serving God in all humility. The God we serve is NOT a poor God. It is an offence to be serving God and be poor. You need to have in order to give.

@Hon_Lastborn – God Bless you.. @renoomokri I know you’re rich. That is why I want you to bless me too. Bless my life Sir
