That’s Not My Job

This is a story about four people named: Everybody, Somebody, Anybody and Nobody. 

There was an important job to be done and Everybody was sure that Somebody would do it. 

Anybody could have done it, but Nobody did it. Somebody got angry about that, because it was Everybody’s job. Everybody thought Anybody could do it, but Nobody realized that Everybody wouldn’t do it. It ended up that Everybody blamed Somebody when Nobody did what Anybody could have done.

 Is this not true?

Happy Fathers Day!

God took the strength of a mountain, the majesty of a tree, the warmth of a summer sun, the calm of a quiet sea, the generous soul of nature, the comforting arms of night, the wisdom of the ages, the power of the eagle’s flight, the joy of a morning in spring, the faith of a mustard seed, the patience of eternity, the depth of a family need, Then God combined these qualities, when there was nothing more to add. He knew His masterpiece was complete and so, He called it Dad.

“A wise son makes a glad father”

Judas had the best Pastor, the best Leader, the best Teacher, the wisest, the best Friend. And he failed. The problem isn’t the Leadership or the church you go to. If your attitude doesn’t change or your character isn’t transformed, you will always be the same.

Don’t forget the Sanctuary Quartet will be singing at Bethel Church on Sunday night, June 10th at 6:p.m. Everyone is invited to come and enjoy!

Here on Wednesday was Dan and Carol Little from West Monroe and Jerry and Pat Goyne from Mer Rouge.

Just A Bedtime Thought

Everything that kept you up last night and stole your rest, didn’t go away just because you stayed awake worrying. Worry and fear will keep you up all night, but Faith makes a mighty fine pillow. You may not have an answer for your situation, you may not see a way out, you may feel like your heart is so broken it can never be put back together, But God does! Do your family  and yourself a favor. Give it to God and go to sleep. God’s got this.
