A Churchgoer wrote a letter to the editor of a newspaper & complained that it made no sense to go to church every Sunday.
I’ve gone for 30 years now & in that time I have heard something like 3,000 sermons, but for the life of me, I can’t remember a single one of them. So, I think I’m wasting my time & the preachers & priests are wasting theirs by giving sermons at all.
This started a real controversy in the ‘Letters to the Editor’ column. Much to the delight of the editor, it went on for weeks until someone wrote this clincher:
I’ve been married for 30 years now. In that time my wife has cooked some 32,000 meals. But, for the life of me, I cannot recall the entire menu for a single one of those meals. But I do know this: They all nourished me & gave me the strength I needed to do my work. If my wife had not given me these meals, I would be physically dead today.
Likewise, if I had not gone to church for nourishment, I would be spiritually dead today!
When you are DOWN to nothing, God is UP to something! Faith sees the invisible, believes the incredible & receives the impossible!
Thank God for our physical & our spiritual nourishment! IF YOU CANNOT SEE GOD IN ALL, YOU CANNOT SEE GOD AT ALL! B. I. B. L. E. simply means: Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth!
