It’s Funny…

Funny how a $100 bill “looks” so big when you take it to church,
But so small when you take it to the mall.

Funny how long it takes to serve God for an hour,
But how quickly a team plays 60 min. of basketball

Funny how long a couple of hours spent at church seems,
But short they are when watching a movie

Funny how we can’t think of anything to say when we pray,
But don’t have difficulty thinking of things to talk about to a friend.

Funny how we get thrilled when a baseball game goes into extra innings,
But we complain when a sermon is longer than the regular time.

Funny how hard it is to read a chapter in the Bible,
But how easy it is to read 100 pages of a best selling novel.

Funny how people want to get a front seat at any game or concert,
But scramble to get a back seat at church services.

Funny how we need 2 or 3 weeks advance notice to fit a church event into our schedule,
But can adjust our schedule for other events at the last moment.

Funny how hard it is for people to learn a simple gospel well enough to tell others,
But how simple it is for the same people to understand and repeat gossip.

Funny how we believe what the newspaper says,
But question what the Bible says.

Funny how everyone wants to go to heaven,
Provided they do not have to believe, or to think or to say, or do anything.
