Gurley Streets in Monrovia, Julius Y. Z. K. Williams, has called on Liberians not to live a self centered life.
Rev. Williams made the call Saturday September 14, 2013, at the funeral service of the late M. Tarnue Mawolo held at the FUMC.
According to him, it is time that every citizen of Liberia-be it rich or poor-feels the impacts of each other.
He noted that living a self centered life does not in any way pay or make any difference in someone’s life , but creates a life that may not afford one the opportunity to love others which according to him the Holy Bible is highly against.
Rev. Williams further stressed the importance for one to live a life he calls people-centered, “a life that would make one more lovely even in his or her grave”.
“ I say to you today Liberians, remember that even the poor and rich will all die, therefore, no need for one to live self centered life , such a life that may not bring joy to life or even as you may die and depart this world forever,” the Clergyman further cautioned Liberians.
The Associate and Acting Pastor of the First United Methodist Church also recounted that living a self centered life cannot move Liberia forward, as such, he has challenged Liberians to always identify with each other and work together in moving Liberia forward.
Rev. Williams also told Liberians during the funeral service that their destiny lies in their own hands if only they fear God and believe that things can change in their lives and improve their country status.
“Hold on together Liberians because it is the only way we can all make it better for our country and have our lives more improved,” the FUMC Pastor urged.
Emphasizing on the issue of death, Rev. Williams said no matter how someone may be, cannot stop death because it subdues even big positions.
Meanwhile, the late Mawolo who died on August 26, 2013, at the John F. Kennedy Memorial Medical Hospital in Sinkor, was laid to rest over the weekend at the Kizer Memorial Lawn, Brewerville, Montserrado County.
Mr. Malowo who served in the Liberian Government in various positions, lastly served as Director General of the National Bureau of Concession (NBC).
