Funny, Isn't It?

But you are to be doers of the word, not
just hearers of it, deceiving yourselves.
James 1:22

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 hour, but how quickly a team
plays 60 minutes of basketball.

Funny how long a couple of hours spent
at church are, 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 a
little bit longer than usual.

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 rush
to get a back seat at church.

Funny how we need 2 or 3 weeks 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 we believe whatever the newspapers
say, but question what the Bible says.

Funny how everyone wants to go to heaven
provided they do not have to believe, or
think, or 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.
