Human life has been described as a candle stick, which burns only for a while.
This description was given by the Cathedral Administrator, Archdeacon of Cathedral Archdeaconry, Ven. Benjamin Gujah, during the funeral service of Engr. Jonathan Dzakaa Wayo which held at Mbayongu, Mbakena, in Vandiekya Local Government Area of Benue State on Friday.
The clergyman, who took his reading from the book of Ecclesiastics 11:8-11 and chapter 12:1-7 while titling his message “The Brevity of Life”, stressed that life has a limited time frame no matter the status and achievement of a human being.
He cautioned humans to be wise enough not to miss out on earth and also miss heaven, adding that “no matter what you do in life, remember that a day of reckoning is coming”.
Meanwhile in his remarks, Taraba State Governor, Arch. Darius Dickson Ishaku, took time to appreciate individually and collectively all who took time off to come and identify with the family in its moment of grief, as he prayed God to reward them abundantly.
