This was passed to me in an email and I found it very thought provoking. Had to ask myself which part of each statement is my experience. 
I see areas for improvement and where I need to return my focus.


Isn’t it Strange
How a 20 dollar bill seems like such a large amount when you Donate it to church,
But such a small amount when you go Shopping?

Isn’t it Strange
How 2 hours seem so long when you’re at church,
And how Short they seem when you’re watching a Movie?

Isn’t it Strange
That you can’t find a word to say when you’re praying but..
You have no trouble thinking what to talk about with a Friend?

Isn’t it Strange
How difficult and boring it is to read one chapter of the Bible but…
How easy it is to read 100 pages of a popular Novel?

Isn’t it Strange
How everyone wants Front-row-tickets to concerts or games but…
They do whatever is Possible to sit at the last row in Church?

Isn’t it Strange
How we need to know about an event for Church 2-3 weeks Before the day
so we can include it in our agenda,
But we can Adjust it for other events in the last Minute?

Isn’t it Strange
How difficult it is to learn a fact about God to share it With others;
But how easy it is to learn, understand, extend and repeat Gossip?

Isn’t it Strange
How we believe everything that magazines and newspapers say
But.... We question the words in
The Bible?

Isn’t it Strange
How everyone wants a place in heaven but...
They don’t Want to believe, do, or say anything to get There?

Isn’t it Strange
How we send jokes in e-mails and they are forwarded right away
But… When we are going to send messages about God,
We think about It twice before we share it with Others?
