One Idaho teenager who made $35,000 in one week, decided to tithe $7,000 to his church “for the sole purpose of advancing the kingdom.”
According to CBN News, 18-year-old David Holston was visiting his mother in Seattle, Washington when the state was hit by a historic snowstorm of up to 10 inches. The Idaho teen – who is no stranger to the snow – decided that this would be a great opportunity to serve the community by offering his snow plowing services.
CBN News reports that the teen put an add up on Craig’s list and was flooded with calls from locals and businesses who were not equipped for the snow – a rare sighting in Seattle. Typically, Holston charges $125 and hour, but because the demand was so high, he raised his price to $500+.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him.

If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
