6) Isn’t it strange how we need to know about a church event two to three weeks before the day so we can include it in our agenda, but we can adjust our schedule for other events in the last minute?
7) Isn’t it strange that we can drive hundreds of miles to a sporting event in inclement weather but we’ll miss church services because of inclement weather?
8) Isn’t it strange that we can get to a sale or sporting event twenty-four hours in advance (stay in line outside in inclement weather) but we can’t make it to church services on time?
9) Isn’t it strange how difficult it is to learn a fact about God to share with others, but how easy it is to learn, understand, extend and repeat gossip?
10) Isn’t it strange how we share jokes that we hear right away, but when we are sharing messages about God, we think about it twice before we share it with others?
11) Isn’t it strange how we believe everything that magazines and newspapers say, but we question the words in the Bible?
12) Isn’t it strange how everyone wants a place in heaven, but they don’t want to believe, do or say anything to get there?
