God Gold of the Day
Today’s Son-day surprise is a good ole Sunday funny for ya!!! Hope everyone has an awesome day at church!!! Heard something that’s kept me pretty convicted and kind of lit a fire under me with as much as I find myself comfortable and complacent in this life with Christ. Hope it can fire you up in a similar way and be a great reminder throughout the week ahead;
“Going to church doesn’t make you a Christian any more than going to a garage makes you an automobile.” -Billy Sunday
Great reminder to serve Monday-Saturday like we serve today and worship the Lord those days as well like we do today. I don’t say that to hurt any body’s feelings, I say that to call all of us out because Jesus Christ whom we follow is so much bigger than any Sunday-limited, comfortable Christianity. He’s made us for more and people need to know how awesome He is!!! Let’s get it this week!!!
“It’s The Thought That Counts
Choosing a gift for an elderly mother…
Three sons left home, went out on their own and prospered. Getting back together, they discussed the gifts they were able to give their elderly mother.
The first said, “I built a big house for our mother.” The second said, “I sent her a Mercedes with a driver.” The third smiled and said, “I’ve got you both beat.
You remember how mom enjoyed reading the Bible? And you know she can’t see very well. So I sent her a remarkable parrot that recites the entire Bible. It took elders in the Church 12 years to teach him. He’s one of a kind. Mama just has to name the chapter and verse, and the parrot recites it.”
Soon thereafter, mom sent out her letters of thanks:
“David,” she wrote one son, “The house you built is so huge. I live in only one room, but I have to clean the whole house.”
“John,” she wrote to another, “I am too old to travel. I stay most of the time at home, so I rarely use the Mercedes. And the driver is so rude!”
“Dearest Jeffrey,” she wrote to her third son, “You have the good sense to know what your mother likes. The chicken was delicious.”
