A PASTOR WHO STOLE 500,000.00 NAIRA BANK CHEQUE.
A couple invited the pastor of their church for dinner in their home. After the pastor left, the man said to his wife; ” I think the pastor has stolen the 500,000.00 naira open bank cheque that I kept on the table of which I had the intention to give him”. Angrily his wife exclaimed; ” if they are not pedophile, they are thieves. There is no need to invite him again. We shall from henceforth be attending another church”.
Two months later, the woman met the pastor in a certain street and was courageous enough to face him and said: ” Good morning Father, you have surely realised that we no longer attend church. This is because we’re very angry with you. The day you ate in our house, there was a 500,000.00 naira open bank cheque on the table. It disappeared while we were eating. You were the only person who visited our house at that time”. The pastor said to her, “yes, I took the cheque. I put it in the Bible to avoid spilling the sauce on it”. The woman got so confused and asked the pastor to forgive her.
Back in her house, she took up the Bible and found the bank cheque which had been there for two months.
For two months, she had not opened her Bible to reflect on the word of God,
For two months she and her husband falsely accused the pastor,
For two months, the incident had tortured them.
If you are reading this story now, and you are not at peace with yourself, for any reason whatsoever, ask yourself whether it’s because you have not opened your Bible for a long time.
Do you even have one?
Secondly, do not accuse anybody falsely.
