now i have heard as a pastor, folks, every excuse in the world why people can’t come to church.
now from those excuse about not coming to church, i found a list of excuses of why i am giving up sports. ok?
football in the fall, basketball in winter, baseball in the spring and summer, i’ve had it all, i have quit attending sports once and for all and here are my ten excuses.
#1. everytime i went they asked for money.
#2. the people i sat next to didn’t seem friendly
#3. the seats were too hard. they weren’t comfortable at all.
#4. i went to many games, but the coach never came to call on me.
one pastor had a woman ask him, “pastor, when are you going to come and see me?” he said, “lady, you don’t want to be that sick.”
#5. the referee’s made decisions that i didn’t agree with.
#6. Here’s a good one. the game went into overtime and i was late getting home.
#7. the band played numbers that i had never heard before and it wasn’t my style of music.
#8. it seems the games are always scheduled when i want to do other things.
#9. i expect that i was sitting by some hypocrites. they came to see their friends and they talked through the whole game.
#10. i was taken to too many games by my parents when i was growing up.
now unfortunately, many CHRISTians are pros at making excuses so i wrote down some excuses from pastors and church leaders for resisting change. things like, we’ve tried that before. our church is different. it costs too much. it is impossible. it wouldn’t work here. we’ve never done it that way before. and the best one, let’s form a committee.
now the fact is, excusers are losers. excusers are losers.
just a thought from the front porch…
