FUNNY ISN'T IT?
Funny how a $100 "looks" so big when you
take it to church,
but so small when you take it to the mall.
Funny how long it takes to serve God for an
but how quickly a team plays 60 minutes of basketball.
Funny how long a couple of hours spent at
but how short they are when watching a movie.
Funny how we can't think of anything to say
when we pray, but
don't have difficulty thinking of things to talk about to a friend.
Funny how we get thrilled when a baseball
game goes into extra innings,
but we complain when a sermon is longer than the regular time.
Funny how hard it is to read a chapter in
but how easy it is to read 100 pages of a best selling novel.
Funny how people want to get a front seat at
any game or concert,
but scramble to get a back seat at church services.
Funny how we need 2 or 3 weeks advance
notice to fit a church
event into our schedule, but can adjust our schedule for other
events at the last moment.
Funny how hard it is for people to learn a
simple gospel well
enough to tell others, but how simple it is for the same people
to understand and repeat gossip.
Funny how everyone wants to go to heaven
provided they do not
have to believe, or to think, or to say, or do anything.
Funny how you can send a thousand 'jokes'
through e-mail and
they spread like wildfire, but when you start sending messages
regarding the Lord, people think twice about sharing.
FUNNY, ISN'T IT?
Are you laughing?
Are you thinking?
