IT IS STRANGE ISN'T IT...

Got this from an email sent by a friend of mine.. reflection time....

Isn't it strange
how a 10 ringgit 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 or ZANE GREY book?


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?

haha, like the one abt front row at concerts but back row in church. its more of mentality and wanting to maintain low profile at times.

for some, its to stay away from church leaders and away from commitments
