Instead of a Sunday Sermon from me, I am referring a post called “Robbing God” posted by stainedmythespirit. A fantastic perspective of robbing God that goes beyond tithes and offerings – or time, talent, fasting, or anything else I had ever considered. https://stainedbythespirit.wordpress.com/2022/03/26/robbing-god/#like-6341
FROM MY BITS AND PIECES POT:
Sign in hotel lobby: The manager personally passed all the water served here.
Sign in religious artifacts store: If you are interested In life after death, try robbing this store.
Sign in cocktail lounge: All women are requested not to have children in the bar.
Sign in dry cleaners: Drop your pants here.
Caught by conscience in my sin, I drag myself before your face
And all my shame shouts out my guilt and calls for condemnation.
But as your eyes read all in mine and neither blink nor charge
I hear the call of stones un-thrown and weep in my salvation.
(Ann Cole, Decision Magazine)
Still He goes on loving me, loving me all the time
I have wounded him, his patience tried
Spurned his tenderness, his name denied
But still He goes on loving me, loving me all the time.
(Frank Houghton, Decision Magazine)
Cartoon of a teenager with his pants dropped down to lower hips: “I don’t really like dressing this way, but it is the only way I can keep my parents from dragging me out with them.”
Family Circus: PJ looking at piano keys. “There are millions of songs in here, but you have to punch the right ones to get them out.”
In 1993, Evelyn Noestmo lost her ring as she and her husband tried to push their car out of a snow drift. Three years later she was cooking moose entrails as a treat for their dog. In those entrails was her lost ring with its distinctive crack which caused it to fall off in the first place. (taken from unidentified AP newspaper article)
Wishing you all a joyous Sunday. This is unusual kind of Sunday post, but if you took my advice and read the article by “stainedbythespirit” you have added to your Sunday blessings.
The poems from Decision Magazine magazine were from years ago. I have no idea of how to give the authors credit they are due.
