She’s always in Church, wearing faded jeans, an old T-shirt & slippers. She comes to clean & arrange the seats, decorate & clean the pulpit whenever it is dirty… For six years, she never missed a single Saturday coming to clean the Church.
One Saturday, a young man walked into the Church while she was still arranging the chairs. He went & sat down watching as the lady was working.
He was impressed that a lady who looked quite beautiful even in the old clothes & a scarf over her hair could be so dedicated to her work in Church. He thought within himself that this was an unfortunate lady who probably had no one take care of her schooling & could probably be an orange seller or some petty trader struggling to make ends meet at the market stall. He watched & within his heart felt he knew what God wanted him to do. When he had felt a compulsion to come very early to Church, he had not understood but now he thought he did.
He went back to his car & took out $100 note. When the lady finished her work & was about to leave, he called her & thanked her for her service then gave her the note.
She respectfully declined the note but he insisted pressing it into her hands. He asked if she lived close so he could go drop her.
She thanked him & said, “my car is just outside”, but he did not believe what she had just said. He walked her out determined to find out all he could about this lady that God wanted him to help change her level.
They walked out of the Church with him telling her where he worked & how God had asked him to come early to Church that day & how he believed God is directing him to help make a big difference in her life. He was so busy talking he had not realized they had walked directly to a BMW X6 2017 limited Edition parked under trees in the parking lot.
The car made his one year old Benz look like a worn out wheelbarrow. The lady opened the driver’s door, stepped in & handed over her card to the man then said, “I don’t believe God sent you here to change my status but yours & teach u humility.
