Special New Year Greetings to the awesome people of Rivers State. Happy New Year and Welcome to another episode of RivEthics on Radio, our character-building weekend show. Please remember that a new beginning could lead to a new you. This New Year episode is titled, A New Beginning.
The New Year is an opportunity to say thank you and appreciate family, friends and community. We tend to forget to look around and appreciate people who covered our backs throughout the old year. This year let us acknowledge those who have stood with us. For all those who have supported us in RivEthics as listeners, staff and partners, we extend our hearty appreciations. And to all Rivers people, we salute your resolve and resilience in the face of multiple challenges.
We know you have gone through a lot this past year. But note that every tragedy was meant to give you the opportunity to develop compassion. Every challenge allowed you to work your courage muscles. And for all the times you got stuck, you learnt how to work harder.
In 2020, as we begin a new decade, accept yourself, your life and the circumstances, and try to make the best use of the resources at hand. Know yourself better and try to understand other people and situations. Know your shortcomings, virtues, skills, abilities, interests and passion.
Some people may have lived below their potential through violence, anger, greed, bad addiction, lust, and guilt. These negatives can be converted to peace, compassion, gratitude, good habits, love, and self-respect through positive thinking and living. Good and positive thoughts impact your actions and can turn the trajectory of any life towards success. Change may feel awkward and difficult at the start – it always does. But you need to push yourself to make change happen. Above all, trust God for change and success in 2020. You have the power and potential to create a new beginning! Let’s just do it, Rivers people.
Our guest speaker today is Pastor Isaac V. Olori, the International Director of Greater Evangelism World Crusade. Let us listen as he expounds on the topic – “A New Beginning.” Please enjoy the episode.
Our wonderful Rivers people, please remember to always let your manners speak for you.
God bless and keep you and your families and God bless Rivers State
