Job 1:3 ERV

He owned 7000 sheep, 3000 camels, 1000 oxen, and 500 female donkeys. He had many servants. He was the richest man in the east.


zuma family with nkandla is number20


The other nine guys have a history on how they obtained this wealth. How did our man got it? Even his parents cannot explain how their son got this wealth. Not even 1 percent of Malawians can explain yet the young man has been reared and grown up here. The source of his wealth untraceable, therefore a bizzare, God did not take part in Bushiri’s richness.

Jesus is LORD
Titus 1:7-11 – For a bishop must be blameless, as the steward of God; not selfwilled, not soon angry, not given to wine, no striker, not given to filthy lucre; But a lover of hospitality, a lover of good men, sober, just, holy, temperate; Holding fast the faithful word as he hath been taught, that he may be able by sound doctrine both to exhort and to convince the gainsayers.
