Does The Church Owe You Anything Financially?

25

There is this story I might share later as the spirit leads.. But before my recent "NOT GOOD AT ALL" ordeal, I was a voluntary worker in church.. It was a decision I took when I was going through severe Sapa last year.. I will wake up early as 5am and go clean the church, it was a massive church that took me hours to clean but I was always glad cleaning it and sometimes, the leader of the church will meet me there and pray for me... This was going on for a while and thank God for alfajohn that encouraged me and helped during my trying times last year. So sometimes around July last year, things begin to change for good and for a year plus, I was always cleaning and contributing my own quota to the church not until my recent predicament... I was away for almost 3months believing I am onto a better thing but things didn't go well (a story for another day) I lost everything.. The news in town was that I traveled out, I no Sabi where the notion came from Sha.. So people in the church already believed I traveled until they saw me recently.. So before I left for Lagos, I already made a vow to God to do something tangible that people will always use as a point of contact, I did it before leaving and even the church leader was happy and prayed for me.. So when I came to her and explained all I went through, the first question was, did you sell your business? And I said yes.. She just prayed casually and dismissed me even though I said to eat was a problem now that my family now stays with me... NOW not that I expected money or anything but I was expecting some kind of preferential treatment based on my past deed in the church.... This is not to tarnish the church or the body of christ but, "DOES THE CHURCH OWE US ANYTHING IN TIME OF FINANCIAL PROBLEMS"? Modified - I know people will bash me that why always me? But I believe we keep learning until there is nothing left to learn.. The few months, I learnt the greatest lessons of my life and I believe it will be hard henceforth to run into problem again God willing... This is the greatest lesson of all..
