Isn't It Strange?

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 good 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 everything possible to sit in the last row at Church?

Isn't it strange how we need to know about an event for Church
2-3 weeks in advance so we can include it in our agenda,
but we can make adjustments for other events at a moment's notice?

Isn't it strange how difficult it is to learn a fact about God
and 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 have messages to send about God,
we think about it twice before we share it with others?
