‘Peo­ple must stay away from be­ing greedy’

Sunday Observer - - NEWS -

His Majesty said peo­ple must learn to be pa­tient and stop be­ing greedy and want to take short­cuts in get­ting things they want.

His Majesty said if one is pa­tient and wait for the right time, God re­wards pa­tience at all times. He said as a na­tion we must take a leaf from the story of Joshua and Moses dur­ing the time they led the Is­raelites to the promised land. He said af­ter Moses had cho­sen Joshua to be with him when he con­sulted with God, Joshua, who was Hosea at the time, only as­pired to be in Moses’ place.

“If it was some­one who was not pa­tient he should have de­cided to get rid of Moses and take his place and speak di­rectly with God, but he was pa­tient un­til the right time where he was tested and of­fi­cially blessed and named Saint Je­ho­vah which was later short­ened to Joshua,” the King said.

His Majesty said peo­ple must de­sist from tak­ing short­cuts which leads them to even kill other peo­ple due to greed and jeal­ousy. Peo­ple must know that a per­son’s life is in the hands of God not their own. Peo­ple must be pa­tient and let the right time come to get some­thing which God will deem fit,” he said.
