The Hireling

The Hireling

My mum told me she didn't go 
to her church in Texas for 
three months. I asked why
She said her pastor invited another 
pastor to minister in the church 
and this invited pastor said 
"Empty your pockets, this is not 
God speaking, it is me. 
I want to ride Range Rover 
this year"

My mummy said she thought it 
was a joke until the ushers took 
offering baskets and started going 
round the church to collect money from members.

She said she carried her bag and 
left and refused to go back to church 
since that day

I laughed and said "It means 
your pastor does the same thing 
when he ministers in other 
people's churches.

My mum said "That must be true 
because I know you would have 
thrown him out of the church 
if you were the pastor"

A mother knows her children!

PS: I was invited to a church once 
to minister, the pastor told me 
the members are not givers.
He asked me to appeal to 
his members to give to a building 
project they were doing.

I ministered as led by the Holy Spirit 
and gave the church the money 
needed to complete the project.

That is the gospel!

If I don't have the money I will 
give whatever I have.

If I don't have anything at hand 
I will prophesy over the project 
and assure the pastor resources will 
come (and the resources will)

That is how to preach the gospel 
and not make a mockery of the pulpit.
