What is one thing or cause that you are passionate about? (More specifically, something you feel that the Lord has burdened your heart with)
I can answer this question in one word: People. To be more specific however, I would say that the cause I am most passionate about is helping young people live their lives to the fullest.
I am not sure how things are in other countries, but in Nigeria, unemployment is such an issue. As a result, it is not uncommon to see groups of young men and women just hanging around doing nothing. The formal education is totally inadequate; it gives training and prepares for white collar jobs and there just aren’t enough of that to go round. Other alternatives need to be explored and stealing is not an option.
I have this burden deep in my heart to open the eyes of the young people around me to how they can create jobs for themselves. In addition, I would like them to know, that with Christ and a positive attitude, they do not need to have millions in their bank accounts to live a comfortable life. I would like to see a generation of financially independent people, who love God.
That, basically is what I am passionate about. There are other things; but I think this really brings out the desire of my heart.
This was this week’s question at the Cafe; I want to throw it back to you – what are you passionate about? If you decide to answer this on your blog, go here and drop the link; we’ll stop by and say ‘hello’.
