Don’t jump into Marriage because somebody has Money – Bishop Oyedepo appeals to Single people

Senior Pastor of the Living Faith Church, Bishop David Oyedepo, has appealed to young people not to get married because of money. Taking a cue from his own life, the clergyman gave the advice while preaching in his church on Sunday, August 29, stating that he did not have money when he got married to his wife, Faith, 39 years ago. ''You don't jump into marriage because somebody has money. I didn’t have no money. I didn't look like someone who will have money. Just one boy who doesn't know what he is saying, always saying, "Jesus loves you." Did we say, "He hates us before"? You think this man has any future?
