Truisms

1) Don't let your worries get the best of you ... remember, Moses started out as a basket case.
2) Some people are kind, polite, and sweet spirited until you try to sit in their pews.
3) Many folks want to serve God, but only as advisors.
4) It is easier to preach ten sermons, than it is to live one.
5) The good Lord didn't create anything without a purpose, but mosquitoes come close. ( I think I would add cock roaches.)
6) When you get to your wit's end, you'll find God lives there.
7) People are funny ... they want the front of the bus, the middle of the road, and the back of the church.
8) Opportunity may knock once, but temptation bangs on your front door forever.
9) Quit griping about your church ... if it was perfect, you couldn't belong.
10) If the church wants a better pastor, it only needs to pray for the one it has! .
11) Some minds are like concrete ... thoroughly mixed up and permanently set.
12) Peace starts with a smile.
13) I don't know why some people change churches ... what difference does it make which one you stay home from?
14) A lot of church members who are singing "Standing on the Promises" are just sitting on the premises.
15) We were called to be witnesses, not lawyers or judges.
16) Be ye fishers of men. You catch them - He'll clean them.
17) Coincidence is when God chooses to remain anonymous.
18) Don't put a question mark where God put a period.
19) Don't wait for 6 strong men to take you to church.
20) Forbidden fruits create many jams.
21) God doesn't call the qualified ... He qualifies the called.
22) God loves everyone, but probably prefers "fruits of the spirit" over "religious nuts."
23) God promises a safe landing, not a calm passage.
24) He who angers you ... controls you.
25) If God is your Co-pilot ... swap seats.
26) Don't give God instructions ... just report for duty.
27) The task ahead of us is never as great as the Power behind us.
28) The Will of God never takes you to where the Grace of God will not protect you.
29) We don't change the message ... the message changes us.
30) You can tell how big a person is by what it takes to discourage him.
31) The best mathematical equation I have ever seen: 1 cross + 3 nails = 4 given.

I got this in email from a friend and thought you would like it. I'm busy working on my taxes, so if I don't reply or visit your blogs for a few days, it's because I'm knee deep in papers.

Never seen that list but there were certainly a few chuckles in it. Interesting that there are no jokes about passing the collection plate. Would think there'd be some humor there.
