The following was sent to us by the folks in the Rose Street Community. They have been quite active in not only taking back their community from Drug Dealers, but also offering help to those who had once been a plague.
- Funny how we call God our Father and Jesus our Friend, but find it hard to introduce them to our family.
- Funny how much difficulty some have learning the gospel well enough to tell
others, but how simple it is to understand and explain the latest gossip
about someone else.
Funny how a $20.00 bill looks so big when you take it to church, but so small
when you take it to the mall.
Funny how big an hour serving God looks and how small 60 minutes are when
spent watching television, playing sports, sleeping or taking a lunch break.
Funny how long a couple of hours spent at Church Is but how short they are
when watching a good movie.
Funny how we get thrilled when a football game goes into overtime, but we
complain when a sermon is longer than the regular time.
Funny how laborious it is to read a chapter in the Bible and how easy it is
to read 200-300 pages of a best selling novel.
Funny how we believe what newspapers say, but question what the Bible says.
Funny how people scramble to get a front seat at a concert, but scramble to
get a back seat at the church service.
Funny how we cannot fit a gospel meeting into our schedule with our yearly
planner but we can schedule for other events at a moment's notice.
Funny how we look forward to that big date on Friday night, but complain
about getting up for church on Sunday morning.
Funny how we are rarely late to work, but always late to church.
Funny how small our sins seem, but how big their sins are.
Funny how we demand justice for others, but expect mercy from God.
Funny how we can't think of anything to say when we pray, but don't
have any difficulty thinking of things to talk about to a friend.
Funny how we are so quick to take directions from a total stranger when we
are lost, but are hesitant to take God's direction for our lives.
Funny how so many church goers sing "Standing on The Promises" but all they
do is sit on the premises.
Funny how people want God to answer their prayers, but refuse to listen to
Funny how we sing about heaven, but live only for today.
Funny how people think they are going to Heaven but don't think
there is a hell.
Funny how it is okay to blame God for evil and suffering in the world, but it
is not necessary to thank Him for what is good and pleasant.
Funny how when something goes wrong, we cry, "Lord, why me?" but when
something goes right, we think, "Hey, it must be me!"
Or wait...maybe all this isn't so "funny" after all.
