Pastor Olukoya mentions these twin evils that are common among women, check yourself
By Gladys Ekwu
Dr. Daniel Olukoya, the General Overseer of Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries has described envy and jealousy as twin evils.
Dr. Olukoya who said this in his Friday’s daily devotional manual “Mountain Top Life” noted that they are common among women.
He said that unfortunately, many Christian families were found wanting in the area of siblings rivalry.
“This is one evil that should not occur in a family. If not checked in earnest, it could degenerate into serious damage which will tear down the very fabric of the family”, he added.
The man of God in his topic entitled ‘Siblings Rivarly’ said that God detests anyone that sows discord among brethren, adding that such children may end up as enemies except for divine intervention.
Dr. Olukoya, however, urged everybody to learn from the mistakes of Esau and Jacob, Cain and Abel, Joseph and his brothers to avoid such in our families.
The man of God urged everybody who entertains envy and jealousy to repent and have a change of heart.
He said, ‘Envy and jealousy can be described as evil twins. Why desire what belongs to another? It is an evil craving, why do you think that position is better occupied by you and not your brother or sister? What makes you think you can perform better in that instance than your brother? Why do you like contention?
“Working unjustly against your siblings, who is a believer can earn you some divine rebuke which may be costly. Above all, envy and jealousy are seeds of evil, works of the flesh, and all who engage in them shall not inherit the kingdom of God according to Galatians 5:19-21.
