The Pineapple Story

I recently watched a video entitled “The Pineapple Story” which is an account from a missionary named Otto Koning.  It is a hilarious account of his misadventures in Papa New Guinea.  He tells of the natives whom he was trying to preach the gospel to that were stealing his possessions and in particular his pineapples.  After years of struggle he learns to give everything to God and only then begins to be at peace and bear fruit.  This message is definitely thought provoking and well worth the time to watch.  Are we being a servant and a steward of all areas and parts of our lives or do we claim or "rights", ownership and control of these blessings we take for granted?

Here is a slide from Otto’s presentation of some areas that we need to give God control of.
