A pastor has been called to a certain congregation with one major mandate in mind: “Revitalize our youth ministry! We built this new addition to our church building, with a huge mortgage and we cannot get any younger people to come to our church activities.” So, the Pastor mobilizes the younger families in both the church and in the local area for monthly Sunday night activities. However, the very faces that were on the pastoral call committee often have alternative family plans on Sunday nights.

It may also be true that those who became millionaires would be venerated, those who were comfortable would be admired, those who struggled would be despised and those who were poor would be so completely disregarded that they would quickly become invisible.

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
