Nigerian author, Reno Omokri has condemned the idea of an average person giving to those that are richer than them and neglecting the poor.
In an Instagram post, the Human rights activist noted that being generous is a welcoming gesture which God smiles at.
However, it is not welcoming when it is from a less privileged to a richer person.
Going further, Reno Omokri added that it is worse when the intention has to do with showing off.
He went on to advise people to use their money to get wealthy and not to get attention.
According to him, when they feed the poor, God feels them but when they feed those that are richer than them, God deals with them.
In his words;
“Nothing wrong in giving money to people. But, don’t go into debt to show people how much you love them.
Even worse is going into debt to try to belong to a clique that already knows who belongs and who doesn’t. Use your money to get wealthy, not to get attention!
When you feed the poor, God feels you. When you feed those that are richer than you, God deals with you. Your wisdom is profitable. To you.
Your foolishness is also profitable. But to others. Not you. How can you give someone what your haven’t given your mother?
God does not reward nice people. He rewards wise people.”
