Values are the determining factor of life and work. They are what matters to one, what one stands for. They determine one’s priorities and give a clear sense of what is most important in life. So here I would like to share my core values in life:
- The only lasting impact any man can make in this world and eternity is investing in the lives of others for we are all created in the image of the one true God.
- To whom much is given, much is expected. And as I have been helped immensely of God in life, I owe Him the eternal duty of helping others too.
- Education is a transforming agent. Just like the Gospel of my Lord Jesus Christ, it illuminates and transforms the mind and banishes darkness and ignorance. It is an eye opener.
I bless God for empowering my destiny with so much grace to be useful to my generation. I am a product of God’s grace, even if still an imperfect lover of God and man. But ours is a fault-finding generation with people constantly on the lookout for the fault of others—but blind to values. Thus my chequered journey so far in life has taught me to stand up for values, for adding value to people’s lives, for adding value to humanity. Hence the setting up of this foundation, Pastor Wole Oladiyun Foundation, to the glory of God.
There are masses of unfortunate ones these days; many who just can’t afford education. I feel your pain. Why, because I have been there, too. But hear this: Don’t expect anyone to understand your journey—especially if they have never walked your path.
By the grace of God, beneficiaries of PAWOF will do the greater works of advancing the Gospel of our Lord and establish greater foundations of their own to help humanity to the glory of God. Amen.
I wish you all well, in Jesus’ precious name.
