A pastor was having an awful time with his congregation and eventually decided to pack it in.
At the close of the next Sunday morning service he announced, “Some years ago Jesus brought me to this congregation. Jesus is now taking me away from it.”
With those remarks he sat down somewhat abruptly and it was left to the organist to announce the closing hymn. “How appropriate,” he commented, “that we sing hymn number 104 – ‘What a friend we have in Jesus.'”
I had amnesia once — or twice, I forget which it was.
Thought for the day
Matthew 6:25, Jesus says this: “Do not be worried about the food and drink you need in order to stay alive, or about clothes for your body. After all, isn’t life worth more than food? And isn’t the body worth more than clothes?” (GNT).
Worry exaggerates the problem. Problems don’t shrink when you think about them. They grow.
