The Pastor of the Pentecostal Church of Salvation in Ogba Area of Lagos Pastor James Agbarilaye came to the church on a Sunday morning with only a few coins in his pocket. Without thinking, he gave the coins out during the offering time. As he was stepping out of the church premises, one of the beggars at the church entrance asked him for alms.
Instead of giving the beggar money, the Pastor invited him for lunch in a nearby restaurant. After the meal, the Pastor putting his hands into his pockets discovered that he had no money on him. As a way of avoiding any embarrassment, the beggar settled the bill. The Pastor now said to the beggar, “Let us take a taxi to my house and I will make a refund of the amount you have paid and the taxi fair; and even add the alms.
“Thanks a lot. You cannot fool me twice. You used trick to make me give you free lunch and now you want to trick me for a free ride home. No way, Pastor!”
