The Bible says that "For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat" - 2 Thessalonians 3:10. The same Holy Scriptures said that "Do not overwork to be rich; cease from your own wisdom" - Proverbs 23:4.
But unfortunately, many Ghanaian workers take the spirituality of work more seriously than the physical. Most think that if they devote more time to prayer, their works or jobs will flourish than devoting their time to the physical. Some move from church to church in search of spiritual breakthroughs for their work.
But the Executive Chairman of the Tobinco Group of Companies, Elder Samuel Nana Amo Tobbin as a Christian leader has good advice for all Ghanaian workers who want to see their work flourish. The successful entrepreneur admonishes Ghanaian workers that working hours cannot be used for church activities because the Bible said that there is time for everything.
Elder Samuel Nana Amo Tobbin is the Presiding Elder for one of the locals of The Church of Pentecost but according to him he always tried to separate spirituality from his work. He attends every church activity that his church organizes but does not let that disrupt the business that he does.
“I am an elder of the Church of Pentecost and I do not miss any Church activity that my Church embarks on. I separate my spirituality from my work and I do it wholeheartedly. I’m optimistic God understands his children and he appreciates what we do” - he emphasized.
He said this on his own TV Station, Atinka TV's "Ghana Nie" morning show today, Monday, 3rd May 2021, when he was interviewed by Abena Dufie Asare Agyapong as part of the May Day celebration.
What do you make of his statement? Do you agree with him as a Christian?
