The following is today's daily emailed inspiration from my colleague, Pastor Glen VanderKloot:

Funny, Isn't It?
(Author Unknown)

Funny how a $20.00 bill looks so big when you take it to church, but so small when you take it to the market.

Funny how long it takes to serve God for an hour, but how quickly a team plays sixty minutes of basketball.

Funny how long a couple of hours are spent at church, 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 any 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 the Bible, 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 2-3 weeks advance notice to fit a church event into our schedule, but can adjust our schedule for other events at the last minute.

Funny how much difficulty some people have learning a simple gospel message well enough to tell others, but how simple it is for the same people to understand and repeat gossip about someone.

Funny how we believe what newspapers say, but question what the Bible says.

Funny, isn't it?

Not really.

Matthew 6:33 NIV

But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.


Dear Lord, change my attitudes about time I spend with you. Amen
