Dear Preacher

Dear Preacher,

Every time I am at church, I hear the same message.  You folks at church are always asking members to give.  I thought I would give you a list of what we already give up for God and the Church.

  • I give up four hours a week for Bible classes and worship when I come both Sunday and Wednesday.
  • I give up staying up late on Saturdays so I am not tired on Sundays.
  • Speaking of Sundays, A lot of my friends and co-workers go fishing or to the races on Sundays – I don’t.
  • There are certain movies that people talk about that I won’t see (not to mention all the  TV shows, concerts, etc.).
  • I don’t drink alcoholic beverages.
  • I do not use recreational drugs.
  • I give almost 10% of my take-home pay every week.
  • Which means, I have a smaller house than I want, an older car than I want, and I am still saving for that boat.

There is so much more to list, but I think, preacher, that you see my point.  Quit asking me to give and give and give.  Don’t you think it is time that God gave up something for me?

Oh, wait . . . He did!

  1. Thanks for the reminder of the tremendous cost that was paid for us. My feeble sacrifices in life could never equate to what he has done for me.
