God s blessings our response

  • Sabbath dinner was on the table at the home of the treasurer of the Holy One SDA Church. As soon as she sat down her friends remarked, “did you see Pastor Davis in that new limited edition Mercedes today? I heard he paid cash for it. Sister Treasurer responded “I wish his tithe reflected all his blessings” Later that friend called the Conference President with a concern about the giving pattern of the Pastor.
