“As we welcome the New Year (2019), I urge you believers to work hard because laziness is like a sin before God. However, do not forget to praise God to bless your wealth,” Ntagali said.

LAZINESS  SIN NTAGALI


The Archbishop of the Church of Uganda, Stanley Ntagali has said that being a lazy person is like a sin before God.

Ntagali made the remarks while presiding over the New Year service at Namirembe Cathedral in the city suburbs of Mengo in Lubaga Division, Kampala.

“As we welcome the New Year (2019), I urge you believers to work hard because laziness is like a sin before God. However, do not forget to praise God to bless your wealth,” Ntagali said.

Ntagali said although 2018 was generally a tough year, the Church of Uganda was able to achieve its utmost goal of completing the Church House.

He lauded President Yoweri Museveni for coming up with the Land Inquiry Commission team headed by Justice of the Court of Appeal Catherine Bamugemereire, which he said has given hope to the citizens on matters of land. 

For people who have made it to 2019, Ntagali said God has given them another chance to reform and should not take it for granted. “Ask yourself why you are alive, yet many are dead,” he said.

Ntagali said in 2019, the Church will focus on children because they are suffering, yet they are the future leaders. 

Ntagali also urged politicians, especially Members of Parliament, to represent the views of their electorate instead of fronting their selfish interest. He also urged them to desist from fighting in the House during debate.

The Bishop of Namirembe Diocese, Wilberforce Kityo Luwalira, said each year will always have its challenges, but believers should only devote themselves to God.
