… the thoughts from a life in the Son-shine State



Say what you want, but we are lazy by nature.

If I had it my way, I wouldn’t do any work.

I want my marriage to be great = Love and serve.
I want money = Work.
I want to be healthy = Exercise and eat right.

With church, it’s the same.

Too many of us see church as a weekend car wash.
Drive thru to clean up and be on your way.
Quick and easy, and cheap.

Or, maybe we don’t go to Church A because the music isn’t our flavor.
Church B has bad preaching.
Church C is full of old people.
Church D serves bad coffee.
Church E…

Here’s a challenge:

It’s not about you.

The reason we become so discontented with churches is because we make it all about us.
Maybe God is directing you to that church because He wants you to serve there.
Maybe the person serving coffee doesn’t know any better, and you can help!

Philippians 2 reminds us, “Don’t look out only for your own interests, but take an interest in others, too.

Another way of saying is this:

TODAY IS NOT ABOUT YOU.

Let’s ditch the selfish my-way-or-the-highway mentality, and realize that the church is the bride of Christ.
It’s designed to be His way.

Let’s seek to serve the Lord and serve others.
When we do so, I think the church will begin to look more like it should — as a blessing to the world!

    Amen and Amen!!! Most people need to hear this. I try and have the mindset to serve others and when I’m at church. I find when I do serve others I in turn feel blessed and used by God.
