A lady went to the Pastor and said…

I won’t be attending church anymore…

He said, may I ask why??

She said people on their cell phones during the service, some gossiping, some just ain’t living right, they are all hypocrites…

The pastor went silent and said “ok… can you do something for me before you make a final decision?”

She said what’s that…

he said, “take a glass of water and walk around the church 2 times and don’t let 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 phones
  2. did you see anybody gossiping
  3. was anybody living wrong?

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

He told her “when you come to church, you should be just that focused on God, so that you don’t fall”.
Thats why Jesus said Follow Me. He did not say follow Christians. Don’t let your relationship with God be determined by how others relate with God. Let it be determined by how focused you are with God…
