The Founder and General Overseer of Omega Fire Ministries International, Apostle Johnson Suleman, in a recent service spoke concerning the ownership of private jets by affluent Nigerians.
While speaking to his members during a mid week service in his Church, Apostle Suleman said life and success of a man is not measured by possession acquired but by the numbers of lives he has impacted.
He, therefore, called on Nigerians to help one another rather than acquiring personal possessions at the detriment of others. saying that “Wealth is not the cars you buy; its not the private jets you buy. Your wealth is the life you have affected.
“You are not termed successful because you have money. Your success in life is a function of how many people who have become successful through your success. Success without affecting others is a failure in disguise.
“How many of you are rich? You are a rich person. You are not rich because you have Jesus. You are not rich because you have Christ. You are not rich because Christ didn’t promise you riches, by receiving him, you become rich; he didn’t promise you that. You are rich because somebody is living because of you. You are rich by how many lives you have affected.
“A man’s prosperity is not estimated by reason of the cars that he has or the money in his bank account. What is your money is what you have used to help life. Life is not for personal gratification but is for generational affectation.
“But wealth is not the cars you buy, its not the jets you buy. Your wealth is the life you have affected.
“A man who pays the school fees consistently for seven people is richer than the man who has a private jet.
“Your success in life is a function of how many people who have become successful through your success. Success without affecting others is a failure in disguise.
“You are not termed successful because you have money.Look at your life and ask yourself a question. If you die now, who will miss you?
“Who will cry because their sustenance has been cut short?
“Your prosperity in life; I see people today, we live in a very funny generation where people spend so much on themselves.
“Somebody makes a new hair and takes a picture and puts it on social media. Somebody takes a bag, and puts it on social media, maybe he spends one million naira buying one bag.
