General Overseer and founder of the International Central Gospel Church (I.C.G.C), Reverend Doctor Mensah Otabil has cautioned young ladies to be ‘wise’ while in their youth so they don’t regret and hop from one church to the other seeking the face of God when no suitor is coming to ask for their hand in marriage.
Mensah Otabil who is known for passing his views on topical issues in the country and when the Moesha story started trending, he decided to throw in this word of advice to all young women out there.
Here’s what he said:
“Abundance comes, maybe when you have an abundance of beauty. …Sometimes you see an 18-year-old, 19-year-old, 20-year-old young lady going out with a 55-year-old man. You have an abundance of beauty, but you are not harnessing your moment well because one of these days, you’ll be 35[-years-old] and at 35, you’d realize,”
“Wow, I wasted my time on that old man!’ Now every young man who should have married you, thinks you are old, used, and discarded. That’s when people [ladies] start going to church, worshipping, fasting and praying and hoping that God will turn things around”.
He added that they must use their time and money very well and not to stupidly use them nonsensically because no condition is permanent.
“Don’t be wasteful; don’t spend all your money on perishable and depreciating commodities – spending money buying cars, buying clothes, which devalue over time, and not appreciate in value. Be wise,” he advised.
