Nathaniel: The work of God is what is more important than anything to me right now.
Jasper: Of course it is, I never said anything about it.

After the two weeks fasting and prayer was over, Mercy and David made up for long lost time and everything became just the way it was. One week later, Mercy came home from church when her husband was not around with some men from church accompanied with a van and carried all the home theater in the sitting room, including the air condition, Plasma TV. Everything in the sitting except the cushion.
When David who was away entered his house, he was shocked to see his house empty and scared that maybe they have been robbed. He quickly called out his wife name.
David: ‘Mercy! Mercy!’ He screamed fearing that the worse may have happened to her ‘Mercy!’
Mercy: Who was in the kitchen preparing dinner came out and hugged him.
David: ‘hugged her and checked if everything was all right with her ‘Are you okay, hope no harm came to you. Where is Jacob our son’ he asked.
Mercy: Are you alright? Our son is fine and this one you are checking me out, hope no problem for you look so worried. Did something happen?
David: What do you mean? He looked at her, looked at his sitting room and looked at her again ‘Where we robbed? What happened here?’
Mercy: ‘Oh’ she smiled ‘is that why you were checking me out to see if I was harmed and asking after our son Jacob? He is fine and do not worry about what you see here for I gave them all out.
David: I don’t get, you did what?
Mercy: I gave them all out.
David: You gave all our gadgets out?
Mercy: ‘Yes I did’ she said smiling.
David: Why would you give all our gadgets out and to who if I may ask?
Mercy: To the church.
Mercy: I said I gave all our gadgets to the church.
David: wiped his face and scratched his two ears for he couldn’t believe or understand the words that just came out of his wife’s mouth. ‘What did you say again?
Mercy: I said I gave them out to the church, I figured there were people who needed that more than we do.
David: You gave out our home theatre, Plasma and other stuff to the church for someone who is in need of them without consulting me?
Mercy: No need because I know you would have done the same thing.
David: Hmmm, I am speechless.
Mercy: Why? More blessings for us ooo.
Mercy: Yes honey.
David: Good! now before the blessings starts coming, I want you to go in there, get dressed and you know how my sitting room was before I left this house this morning, I want it that way otherwise, I don’t want you to return to this house until every single penny is returned. Do I make myself clear?
Question: i think it’s getting hawter here. Are you feeling the heat? Any advice for Sister in Christ “Mercy”?
