Ven. S. I. Akponorie
Nigerians have been charged to treat others as they want to be treated, so as to make the world a better place to live
Chaplain, Chapel of the Annunciation, Archbishop Vining College of Theology, Akure, Ven. S. I. Akponorie gave this charge in his message to Nigerians titled “Simple Law for Good Daily Living ”
“Thus, fellow Nigerians, the simple law for daily living is to do to others, say to others and treat others wherever you find yourself as you would have them do to you. Similarly, do not do to others, say to others or treat others as you would not have them do to you. If we keep principles, no doubt, our world will be a better place to live. God bless you.
” He said this law is easy to understand and practice irrespective of one’s academic status, race, gender, religion among others
“You do not need to be literate or illiterate before you keep the law. The solution is simple: Do to others as you would have them do to you. And this is the key rule about good living. Our Lord Jesus Christ summarises the law and the prophets .
This is the simple commandment for all, regardless of any academic status, age difference or race. When we live with this consciousness, whether as Christians, common citizens, politicians or traditionalists, we would have helped ourselves and society in a long way; better our living standard; and judgment will be easier on the last day.”
