Kenyans, here’s why you need to always love one another

When the Supreme Court ruled against President Kenyatta following the first round of elections, he accepted the controversial results, despite what appeared to be a massive victory for him. Humility and love are two sides of the same coin, and the religious community at the time saluted the brave and humble acceptance of this decision. Judgement Once again, the Supreme Court has made an important decision. The second round of elections were free and fair, and in accordance with the law. So now it is Raila’s turn to act with humility, in the name of love, peace and unity, and for the sake of the people of Kenya. No pride Baba. No anger Baba. No self-seeking dishonour Baba. Rather a focus on love is what is now required. We are after all brother and sisters, a community of believers. As Proverbs 17:17 teaches us, “A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for a time of adversity.” And we are in a time of adversity. During this time of confusion, our leaders should lead by example.

Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.” Now as a community, as a nation, we should try and set an example for these leaders. A bottom-up approach, if you will. Let us show them that we do not worship money, or power, or even political leaders. We worship the Lord, and in turn the values of peace and love He and His prophets teach us. As Martin Luther King, another great believer, once preached, “We have a glorious opportunity to inject a new dimension of love into the veins of our civilisation.” Let us embrace this opportunity, embrace humility, and most importantly, embrace love, for the peace and well-being of all our Kenyan brothers and sisters.
