On Skipping Church

If you want to hob-nob or rub elbows or network, join the Lions or Rotary or something. You can even tell off-color jokes and not get the evil eye. The only problem is the other people don't have to pretend to like you like they do at church.

    For years my husband was painfully shy...but I noticed that when it involved activities at church he opened up a lot. I asked him why he was so much more open at church than in other settings and his response was..."...because they have to pretend to like me whether they do or not!"

    All kidding aside...sometimes the first step of loving one's neighbor comes with acting as if you do...with the expectation that, by God's grace, the heart will eventually follow along.
