Stephen Williams making the right choice

Published:Saturday | December 19, 2015 | 12:00 AM

Growing up in a Christian home under the guidance of his grandmother, who was committed to serving God, Stephen Williams has kept the family tradition alive by following suit.

Williams, who told Family and Religion that he surrendered his life to Jesus Christ 12 years ago, in honouring a request from his grandmother, is more than convinced that he has made the right choice.

"I grew up observing strong Christian values," commented Williams.

"I was taught the basic principles of sharing, showing love, patience, tolerance, and obedience. The common courtesies of 'good morning', 'thank you', and 'hello', were embedded in me at a tender age. Such teachings have allowed me to be a more caring and well mannered individual. Serving the Lord is the only way and it is the correct thing to do," he said.

Williams, who got married eight years ago, also boasted about his four-year-old son, growing in Christ and destined for a bright future, especially with the guidance of the Holy Spirit.

Deeply rooted in his career of business administration, Williams also finds time to get involved in politics, where he is the councillor/caretaker for Saint Margaret's Bay division - representing the Jamaica Labour Party.

"Everyone should adopt the principles of Christianity as a way of life. Displaying Christian values and attitude will allow for the spreading of love, and as such, there would be no crime, and hunger and starvation would be a thing of the past. The problem with today's society is that we care little about each other, and we have lost all sense if moral value, which is a recipe for loving and caring," Williams said.
