“As we celebrate Easter, we should endeavour to be true followers of Jesus Christ by adhering to his teachings; it is not enough for us to celebrate his resurrection on a yearly basis only, we should emulate all the good things that he stood for.

“Throughout his lifetime, Jesus Christ preached peace, love, humility, forgiveness, tolerance, endurance, and he was a replica of all that is good. Truly, his acts are worth emulating for our society to thrive appropriately. We should choose peace over violence, and love over hatred.

“Importantly, as we wine and dine in celebration of the resurrection of Jesus Christ, we should remember the less-privileged in our midst and reach out to them in whatever way we deem fit, bearing in mind that every good deed will be rewarded no matter how long it takes. Recall that Jesus Christ enjoined us all to give alms to the needy.
