Isn't It Strange?

This message was sent to me by a friend. As you read it I'm sure you'll feel that little twinge of guilt just as I did. Read it anyway, and pass it on.

Isn't It Strange?

Isn't it strange how a $20 bill seems like such a large amount when you donate it to church but such a small amount when you go shopping?

Isn't it strange how two hours seem so long when you're at church and so short when you're watching a good movie?

Isn't it strange that you can't find a word to say when you're praying but you have no trouble 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 do whatever is possible to sit in the last row at church?

Isn't it strange how we need to know about an event at church 2-3 weeks in advance so we can include it in our schedule but we can adjust our schedule for other events at the last minute?

Isn't it strange how difficult it is to learn a fact about God and share it with others but how easy it is to learn and repeat gossip?

Isn't it strange how we believe everything that magazines and newspapers say but question the words of the Bible?

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 forward e-mail jokes right away but hesitate to forward messages about God?


Now that you've read this message will you forward it to anyone you consider a friend, family, or even a foe? If you chose not to share HIS message you may deprive yourself of being blessed as well as depriving others who may need God in their lives.

Posting this message on my blog is my way of sharing it. I hope you share it, too.
