Saw this and had to share it:

A lady went to the Pastor and said, “I won’t be attending church anymore.”

He said, “May I ask why?”

She replied, “I see people on their cell phones during the service. Some are gossiping. Some just ain’t living right. They are all just hypocrites.”

The Pastor was silent for a moment and then he said, “Ok… But can I ask you to do something for me before you make your final decision?”

She said, “What’s that?”

He said, “Can you take a glass of water and walk around the church two times without allowing any water fall out of the glass.”

She said, “Yes, I can do that.”

She came back and said “It’s done.”

He asked her 3 questions:

  1. Did you see anybody on their phone?
  2. Did you see anybody gossiping?
  3. Was anybody living wrong?

She said, “I didn’t see anything because I was so focused on this glass, so the water wouldn’t fall.”

“When you come to church,” he said, “you should be just that focused on God , so that YOU don’t fall out. That’s why Jesus said ‘Follow me.’

God doesn’t ask us follow Christians. Don’t let your relationship with God be determined by how others relate to God.

Let it be determined by how focused YOU are on God.”
