Ponder On This One...


This should wake us up, change our ways, and touch our heart 

One day, a man went to visit a church, He got there early, parked his car and got out. Another car pulled up near the driver got out and said, " I always park there! You took my place!" 

The visitor went inside for Sunday School, found an empty seat and sat down. A young lady from the church approached him and stated, "That's my seat! You took my place!" The visitor was somewhat distressed by this rude welcome, but said nothing. 

After Sunday School, the visitor went into the sanctuary and sat down. Another member walked up to him and said, " That's where I always sit! You took my place!" The visitor was even more troubled by this treatment, but still he said nothing. 

Later as the congregation was praying for Christ to dwell among them, the visitor stood up, and his appearance began to change. Horrible scars became visible on his hands and on his sandaled feet. Someone from the congregation noticed him and called out, "What happened to you?" The visitor replied, as his hat became a crown of thorns, and a tear fell from his eye, "I took your place."

Lets really think on this, it is sad some Christians are so shallow they allow this to happen. Every church seems to have one though. Have a blessed weekend, and try to be a blessing to those around you..

I just scrolled down and "Zoie Michelle" caught my eye! What an adorable "child"!!! (We have our own, Scooter-Man") and he too thinks he is human. When I pack for a trip he just gets so clingy! ;)

Have a blessed week!!!
