My pastor friend put sanitary, hot-air hand dryers in the rest rooms at his church and after two weeks, took them out.
I asked him why and he confessed that they worked fine, but when he went in there he saw a scribbled sign that read, “For a sample of this week’s sermon, push the button.”
A young minister sitting down to dinner was about to say Grace when he opened the casserole dish that his thrifty bride had prepared from countless refrigerator leftovers.
“I don’t know,” he said dubiously. “It seems to me that we’ve blessed all this stuff before.”
Thought for the day
Jesus said, “If you insist on saving your life, you will lose it. Only those who throw away their lives for my sake and for the sake of the Good News will ever know what it means to really live.” (Mark 8:35 (LB)
We are only fully alive when we’re helping others.
