Author and preacher of the Gospel, Mr Reno Omokri has taken to his official Twitter page to state that for a person to retain seniority in his or her family the person must also endeavor to maintain financial ability because real seniority nowadays is mostly based on how financially stable the person a person is.
"To retain seniority in your family, you must maintain financial ability. Because, although it should not be so, real seniority is not by age. It is by the finances you manage. When Joseph’s older brothers met him in Egypt, they called him ‘master’!
Even though this is not entirely true, Mr Omokri statement is realistic. People, nowadays respect those who are rich more than they respect those who are older than them (even family members).
The best way is not to expect people to respect you, if they do, you take it, if they don't, don't let it get to you.
