Day 5- Stewards of the Gospel

Bible Reading: 1 Corinthians 9: 16-27 Have you ever hired someone to occupy a role and carry out a main task in your company, business or your house but found out that this person doesn’t carry out his main task- rather he prefers to attend to other duties? Or perhaps you have once been disappointed by an artisan? Probably you asked an engineer to fix a problem with your generator but instead of doing that, he simply compounded the problem?…

Day 4- No Offence
