Bible Reading: Proverbs 14: 34

Memory Verse:  The wicked shall be turned into hell, And all the nations that forget God. Psalm 9:17 (NKJV)

A University lecturer wrote: As I stepped to the lobby of the hotel, I saw a bevy of pretty young girls in their early 20s crowded in a corner. They were all skimpily dressed as if they were commercial sex workers. The time was 10.30pm. One of them rushed to greet me. “Good evening, sir”. She was one of my students.

What are they all coming to do in this kind of hotel at this hour and dressed in this manner? Of course, I think I know what it is. A politician or man of means have arranged them for his pleasure and those of his friends and acquaintances. Everyday, our girls are disoriented by these politicians who have neither shame nor conscience because they have access to power and money.

We pride ourselves that we have a large youth population and that is a huge asset. But the truth is that we have a large hardware. The software is highly corrupted. Why do we intend to organize these adolescents into the life of immorality? This reminds me of the experience I had as a special adviser to senate president.

Once we went to open a new government house built by a Governor in one of the southeast states. The Governor arranged a special reception for us. When we got to the venue of the so-called reception, I was shocked. Tens of very young girls sourced from the nearby university – between 17-22 years- were already dancing with top government officials.

I screamed and accosted the majority leader of the State House of Assembly. He boldly answered “These adolescents are our counterparts”. Wow. What? I requested to be taken back to the hotel. That was the end of the reception for me. I couldn’t believe that someone will arrange first year students for an entourage that has the Senate President and the Chairman of the Senate Committee on Education. We are finished.

Now to You: Will you also present your destiny to be sold for money? Worse still, will you allow your destiny to be exchanged on the altar of ephemeral pleasures of sex? Have a rethink today. That boyfriend asking you for your body will only use you, use your virtues and rubbish your destiny only to search for another prey. Guard your destiny seriously in God.

Quote:  Everything rises and falls on leadership.

Prophetic Decree: Destiny wasters and saboteurs shall be far from you, in Jesus name.
