It’s Strange

This is another article that was going around Social Media:

*It’s strange how twenty dollars seems like such a large amount when you donate it to church, but such a small amount when you go shopping.

*It’s strange how 2 hours seem so long when you’re at church, and how short they seem when you’re watching a good movie.

*It’s strange that you can’t find words to say when you’re praying, but you have no trouble thinking what to talk about with a friend.

*It’s strange how difficult it is to read one chapter of the Bible, but how easy it is to read a popular novel.

*It’s strange how everyone wants front-row tickets to concerts, but they want to sit in the last row at church.

*It’s strange how we need to know about an event for church 2-3 weeks in advance so we can include it in our agenda, but we can adjust our schedule for other events in the last minute.

*It’s strange how difficult it is to learn a fact about God AND share it with others, but it’s easy to repeat the latest gossip.

*It’s strange how easy it is to question the words or concepts in the Bible but how easy it is to believe everything that we read in magazines and newspapers and on social media.

*It’s strange how hard it is to think about and ponder these things and admit that we might just need improvement no matter how long we’ve been “serving” the Lord! (I am surely including myself in this!).


Ecclesiastes 11:1, “Cast your bread upon the waters, For you will find it after many days.”
