A pastor has been called to a certain congregation with one major mandate in mind: “Revitalize our youth ministry!

Give me an accounting of your management, because you cannot be my manager any longer.' 3Then the manager said to himself, 'What will I do, now that my master is taking the position away from me? I am not strong enough to dig, and I am ashamed to beg. 4I have decided what to
