Dear Nairobians … It is another December holiday. During this festive season, I want to invite you on a soul searching voyage. There is nothing to be proud of when you live in a big house in Nairobi and drive big cars and earn fat salaries and have big collection of clothes and shoes, when your parents are living in squalor or mud house or leaking semi permanent house.
It is immoral and corrupt when you drive home in December in big cars to semi permanent or houses without plumbing and electricity. You cannot be heard complaining that the Government has failed when you cannot even help your own parents live like you! If every Nairobian uplifted their village homes, Kenya will come close to realizing its dreams.
Ephesians 6:1-3 says: “Children, obey your parents in the Lord for this is right. Honor your father and mother – which is the first Commandment with a promise – so that it may go well with you and that you may enjoy long life on earth.” ..
Therefore, God is clear …. You want long life? Honor your parents this season by building them a house like your house in Nairobi.
