Isn't it strange how a $100 dollar bill seems like such a large amount when you donate it to the church,
but such a small amount when you go shopping?
Isn't it strange how endless an hour seems when we are serving God, but how short it is
when we watch a Football game for 60 minutes?
Isn't it strange how 2 hours seem so long when
you're at the church and how short they seem
when you're watching a good movie?
Isn't it strange that you can't find things to say
when you're praying,
but you have no trouble on thinking what to talk
about with a friend?
Isn't it strange how difficult and boring it is to
read one chapter of the Bible but
how easy it is to read 100 pages of a popular novel?
Isn't it strange how everyone wants
front-row-tickets to concerts or games,
but they do whatever is possible to sit at
the last row in the church?
Isn't it strange how we need to know about an
event for the church 2-3 weeks before
the day so we can include it in our agenda,
but we can adjust it for other events in the last minute?
Isn't it strange how difficult it is to learn a
fact about God to share it with others,
but how easy it is to learn, understand, extend and repeat gossip?
Isn't it strange how we believe everything that
magazines and newspapers say, but we question the words in the
Isn't it strange how everyone wants a place in
heaven, but they don't
want to believe, do, or say anything to get there?
Isn't it strange how we send jokes in e-mails and
they are fowarded right away,
but when we are going to send messages about God,
we think about it twice before we share it with others?
IT'S STRANGE ISN'T IT?
Are you laughing?
Are you thinking about it?
Spread the word, and thank God, because he loves you.
