Change of subject for today!
What do you think ?
(Quote D.G.) I've been pastoring for a long time now, and have
had some odd things show up in the offering pan. ……. This past Sunday was a
first. We had a guy come in off the streets who was in a bad way and he
openly admitted that he was, in his words, "a stone-cold junkie."
After church, an usher called me aside and said, "You have to see
this." This guy put a small vile of heroin and a baggie full of pills in
the offering. I had to laugh, but you think about it, this guy gave what he
had! The shame is that he left before the end of the service so I have no
idea how to track him down

My impression was The person was at a
cross roads just did not know what to do.
I have been there with cigarettes. I needed to quit and finally the time hit me
and I did it. (Remember the joke (?) quitting cigarettes is easy, I quit 5 times
I had a nephew, that was a champion
in the boxing ring and got hooked on drugs. He spent most of his adult life in prison. He died young (43) but finally the time came a couple
years before he died, he got straight, but he had ruined his health.
I know someone facing that just
now. I hope the time has come, it is
getting late, but it is decision time.
Life can be mean as well as good. I do not scoff, laugh nor demean someone
who is ‘hooked’ because I understand! One just does not simply STOP a habit or
addiction, it takes support, prayers, strength and courage, even sometimes a
LOT OF TEARS! And a MADE-UP MIND!’
