“IT’S wonderful to be blessed with the ability to make money and be successful, but the true blessing is being able to use that success­ to help those less fortunate.”

These are the words Pastor Trevor Downham preached at the Lower South Coast Women in Business Forum­ prayer lunch on Tuesday.

The event was held at Stages Restaurant­ in Port Shepstone and entailed a morning of prayer, motivational talks and testimonies.

Downham, lead pastor at the Norwegian­ Settlers’ Church in Izotsha­, said it was important to include spirituality in all sectors of life and not to divide life into sections.

“If you have God, you will always have enough … it’s great to be able to make money. It’s a talent, but remember, you are blessed so you can be a blessing. God has blessed you financially so you can bless others,” he said.

He encouraged business owners to continue in their success, but to also reach out to those who need help.

“There’s a difference between being successful and significant. Sacrifice your success to become significant.”

Guest speaker, Mathabe Mlilo, owner of Mapheq Financial Solutions, echoed Downham’s words and spoke about how people in business should not only concentrate on money and riches, but also find purpose in life.

“There are lots of people looking for guidance and we need to look beyond our own,” said Mlilo.
