The Offering Basket

Have you ever heard of people stealing church’s offerings or breaking into cathedrals to go away with religious relics?

Late last year, some folks broke into the cathedral in d’Oloron-Sainte-Marie , a town in the department of Pyrénées-Atlantiques, in southwest France. They succeeded in stealing valuable liturgical objects. The fact is, this was not the first time incident like this are happening. Many cathedrals are mugged without any difficulties.

Somehow, the places of worship are now becoming the hotspots for the greedy people simply because these places have lesser security reinforced. Today, a so-called professional thief disguised as a Christian and serving as usher can dip hands into the offering basket to assist him or herself.

If there was no more honest Apostle like Peter in the days of Ananias and Sapphira, it is essential to remember that the eyes of the Almighty God are everywhere (Proverbs 15:3). He is watching.
