Truth in a not so pretty package….

A friend of mine at work last night..made a comment…and I love it…

People need to get back to church”

And I never heard a truer statement….we do….

We need to put on a big person pants and go to services..over and over again..

And not the ones with the big clangy music..that all it does is send one into a frenzy..and their brain absorbs all sorts of garbage….

Nope one needs to go back to church..where reverence is spoken…and one sees how we are to act as human beings…

Because honestly from what I see..and what my coworker sees…we are in desperate need of some straightening out…and I include me in that list….

And we have too many..way too many reasons for not being there…

Where is God..?

All they want is my money…

They are doing this..and they are doing that…

All it is…is a show to see who has the bigger car..shorter skirt…and best job on their chest…

I have a few responses..even maybe a few answers…

Where is God…? Look around you…pause..put the coffee down and the blasted cell phone…do you feel Him now…he is part of us..a living breathing life force..that is ever present..at every second…we just shut it off…

And God is present..even when we blame him for everything that goes wrong..but it is our own hands..our own choices…and we can barely slow down long enough to see that…

All they want is my money…

It took a long time for me to decide where to place my funds…and oh how “MY” is not mine…it is time we realize it is my the grace of God..one even has money…

And God wants you..your best..you give him that first every day…that is what is meant by first fruits…

And use wisdom..why give your money to an organization that all it feeds you is marshmallow fluff…give your energy to an organization that feeds you truth..even when it knocks you into next week…That is what my friend meant by…we need to get back in church….

They are doing this and they are doing that…true they are…but you do not have to…

It reminds me of a book I used to read my sons…“What if everybody did…?”

Or the great quote from our parents..” Well if somebody jumped into a pile of poo..do you..?”..apply that for a moment to many situations….yep….

All it is..is people doing a fashion show..or showing off what they have….

Right again…but we need to look in the mirror for that one..because we made it that way..

Our role models..that we have chosen..are movie stars and reality television who’s …and they govern our world…

Stop participating in the game…read different material…stop buying..buying..buying….and look to some others for role models…and talk to God…

Return to participating in life..interaction…put the blasted phone down…stop whining…and do something that no one else is doing…go figure…
