God is not mocked, for whatsoever a man soweth thatshall he also reaps,” he said.He urged Liberians to be generous and hospitable as well as being dedicated and committed to love and share with their fellowmen for oneness in Jesus Christ and should not only do for public sentiment, but must do good for people to consider them to be Christian.He cautioned Liberians not to join other people to talk evil against their leaders and fellow men especially those who have previously done well for them.“Be your brother’s keeper,” he said, “in time of trials, temptations and tribulations in order to fulfill the law of Christ. When one thinks about himself and no one else, when he is nothing, deceives himself, therefore we must desist from selfishness and practice ‘general spirit with generosity”During the colorful occasion, 13 pastors of the church received honors of appreciation for their devotion and numerous contributions toward the church.On behalf of his fellow honorees, Rev.

first_img0Shares0000Brighton striker Glenn Murray (C) celebrates with teammates after scoring their first goal during the English Premier League match against Southampton at the American Express Community Stadium in Brighton, southern England on October 29, 2017 © AFP / Glyn KIRKLONDON, United Kingdom, Oct 29 – Brighton recovered from conceding an early goal to draw with Southampton in a Premier League clash of south coast rivals on Sunday, a result that leaves both clubs safely positioned in mid-table.Southampton took the lead in the seventh minute when Steven Davis pounced after a brilliant free-kick from James Ward-Prowse came back off the woodwork. But Saints were unable to build on their bright start and there was little in the way of goalmouth action for the remainder the half.Newly promoted Brighton levelled shortly after the break when Glenn Murray headed in a Pascal Gross cross from the right at the back post.Goalkeeper Fraser Forster got a hand to the ball but could not prevent it finding the top corner.As the half wore on there were chances for each sides and both managers made changes in an effort to force the decisive breakthrough but they had to settle for a draw.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more
