Dr. Daniel Olukoya, General Overseer of Mountain Of Fire And Miracle Ministries, addressed his congregation on “When You Are Nothing (2)” during their Sunday Worship Service.
“I want you to understand, beloveth, that you cannot give love when it is not in your heart,” he told his congregation. You may give while not loving, but you cannot love while without giving. Men and women should pay attention: you’ve probably realized by now that money can build a house, but it takes love to make it a home.
“There is a difference between a home and a house. Some people complain about being lonely. But the most lonely place in the world is the human heart, where love is absent. Love does not keep a diary of the sins and failures of others. Love does not memorise a diary of wrongdoing.”
He then told the story of what happened after a man thought his wife was cheating and he hid in a bush to spy on her. He said, “I spoke to a man roughly many years ago, when I was a young believer. I was not even as mature as this. For some reasons, he just believed the wife was cheating on him, so he kept following her around.
One day, she said she was going to the birthday party of her friend, but he did not believe that. He believed she was going to a man’s house. All the same, he tailed the woman and was following her at a distance. The house where the woman went was close to his. There was a small bush behind the house where the party was held.”
He then said, “Because this man was following his wife, he went into that bush to hide to see what his wife was doing. Unfortunately for him, one of his legs went into a broken bottle and cut his leg deep.
He screamed It was the scream that attracted my attention. So I saw him on the floor and went to him. I asked him, “Uncle, what are you doing here in the night?” He was not talking.
He said “Do not mind me; I was just following my wife to see whether she was going to the wrong place or the right place”. Look at the harm he did to himself because of a lack of love. And it is a very serious situation.
