At Church

While sitting in church I…
…see her taking selfies for Facebook.
Not what I would do
but at least she is here.
…see him sleeping.
Not what I would do
but at least he is here.
…hear her testimony that becomes a preaching sermon.
Not what I would do
but at least she is here.
…listen as his prayer comes out in stammers and long pauses.
Not what I would do
but at least he is here.
…see she sports rings in places other than her ears and her tattoo shows.
Not what I would do
but at least she is here.
… smell his cigarette smoke.
Not what I would do
but at least he is here.
…sit and judge instead of listening to the Spirit.
That’s not what Christ would do
but at least I am here.

  1. Thank you. This stemmed from watching the girl take selfies and I was distracted watching her instead of listening. I realized it was my problem – not hers. 😊
