The Chancellor of Pentecost University Aps. Eric Kwabena Nyamekye has admonished staff and management to emulate the work ethics of Daniel in the Bible.
The Chancellor admonished when he delivered the keynote address at the 2020 Management and Staff Prayer and Fasting Retreat of the University.
Speaking on the theme “Reflecting God’s Glory in Our Work-Life”, he drew similarities between the work environment of today and the one “Daniel found himself in Babylon”.
Exhorting the Staff from Daniel 6:3-10, Aps. Nyamekye said Daniel found himself in a foreign land where many things like decrees hampered his work. This he says is similar to our work environment where competition and other factors affect our work.
In spite of this, he said “Daniel was consistent in his character, tact and purposefulness in the hostile environment.
From the Bible, “Daniel was tactful in his dealing with Nebuchadnezzar’s staff who was in charge of him”, he added.
Aps. Nyamekye added that “Daniel was very consistent in his righteous life that food, money or knowledge could not corrupt him”. He, therefore, admonished staff to stand true to their assignment to the university.
“We may not be able to sing the Lord’s song in a strange land, but we can live a righteous life in a strange land, Apostle Eric Nyamekye reiterated.
He also urged them to be tactful in dealing with the opportunities and challenges that Pentecost University offers them.
