A Youth Pastor in Living Faith Church, Gwarinpa, Abuja, Pastor Ademola Adekambi, has appealed to a section of the teeming youths of the church to imbibe the culture of saving to invest, pointing out that it is scriptural and godly.
During another series of talk session tagged ‘Mentoring Class’ on Sunday, the cleric extensively explained the power of savings and investment culture, tasking them to take steps of saving for the future now when their current income are fat, adding that they must not spend their savings until it is invested.
According to him, “You must save during the good years of receiving fat income from various sources for the years of famine when the income will be low. And the truth is, you cannot pray against famine because it will surely come. It is natural, going by the scripture.”
While highlighting factors influencing savings and investment culture, he said it is vision, discipline, book keeping, budget development and determination, emphasising that practical engagement in those principles will bring about success and fulfilment in their lives.
Pastor Adekambi insisted that youths must ensure they save 20 per cent of every earnings that come their ways, saying: “Your living expenses should not be more than half of your income.”
Shedding light on what he termed ‘Jesus’ financial principles’, he opined: “If God calls us a nation and a royal priesthood and that is why we should exhibit the character of a nation.” He warned that “the savings you make and cannot generate tithe could bring about divine challenges.”
Pastor Adekambi tasked the youths to live their lives on a book and ensure that their expenses also are detailed in a special book. “Write down your vision, which is your project, for the year and manage it,” he advised.
