12 Reasons Why A Local Minister Stopped Attending Sports Events

12) Every time I went, they asked me for money.

11) The people I had to sit with didn’t seem very friendly.

10) The seats were very hard.

9) The coach never came to call on me.

8) The referee made a decision I couldn’t agree with.

7) I had to sit with some hypocrites who were only there to see what others were wearing.

6) Some games went into overtime and I was late getting home.

5) The band played some songs I had never heard before.

4) The games are scheduled when I want to do other things.

3) I don’t want to take my children because I want them to choose for themselves what sport they like best.

2) My parents took me to too many games when I was growing up.

1) Since I read a book on sports, I feel that I know more than the coaches, anyhow.

Farmer Comeback

A wise old farmer went to town to buy a pickup truck that he saw advertised in the paper for a certain price. After telling the salesman which truck he wanted, they sat down to do the paperwork. When the salesman handed the farmer the bill, and the farmer exclaimed, “This isn’t the price I saw!”

The salesman went on to tell the farmer how he was getting extras such as power brakes, power windows, special tires etc. and that was what raised the price up. The farmer needed the truck badly, paid the price and went home.

A few months later, the salesman called up the farmer and said, “My son is in 4-H and he needs a cow for a project. Do you have any for sale?”

The farmer said, “Yes, I have a few cows, and I would sell for $500.00 a piece. Come look at them and take your pick.”

The salesman and his son appeared a short while later and after spending a few hours in the field checking out all the cows the two decided on one and the salesman proceeded to write out a check for $500.00.

The farmer said, “Now, wait a minute, that’s not the final price of the cow. You’re getting extras with it and you have to pay for that too.”

“What extras?” asked the salesman.

The farmer then handed him the following list:

BASIC COW…………………………$500.00
Two tone exterior…………………..$45.00
Extra stomach……………………….$75.00
Product storing equipment…….$60.00
Straw compartment……………….$120.00
4 Spigots @$10 ea……………….$40.00
Leather upholstery…………………$125.00
Dual horns…………………………….$45.00
Automatic fly swatter……………..$38.00
fertilizer attachment……………….$185.00
GRAND TOTAL…………………..$1,233.00

One Sunday morning, the pastor noticed little Alex standing in the foyer of the church staring up at a large plaque. It was covered with names and small American flags mounted on either side of it. The six-year old had been staring at the plaque for some time, so the pastor walked up, stood beside the little boy, and said quietly, ‘Good morning Alex.’

‘Good morning Pastor,’ he replied, still focused on the plaque. ‘Pastor, what is this?’

The pastor said, ‘Well son, it’s a memorial to all the young men and women who died in the service.’

Soberly, they just stood together, staring at the large plaque. Finally, little Alex’s voice, barely audible and trembling with fear asked, ‘Which service, the 8:30 or the 10:45?’

For months he had been her devoted admirer.  Now, at long last, he had collected up sufficient courage to ask her the most momentous of all questions:

“There are quite a lot of advantages to being a bachelor,” he began, “but there comes a time when one longs for the companionship of another being — a being who will regard one as perfect, as an idol; whom one can treat as one’s absolute own; who will be kind and faithful when times are hard; who will share one’s joys and sorrows.”

To his delight he saw a sympathetic gleam in her eyes.  Then she nodded in agreement.

Finally, she responded, “I think its a great idea!  Can I help you choose which puppy to buy?”

Repost of Ben Dixon’s Reflection

Repost of  a post on Facebook on Wednesday ·by Ben Dixon

 Wednesday reflection:

As a pastor I regularly encounter people who say something like this – “I am really being attacked by the enemy over this” or “the enemy is really coming against me.” I use to never really say anything because I just trusted that people could discern the work of the enemy from their own hangups (rejection, insecurities, fears). The longer I have been a pastor the more I don’t trust that we know the difference from the work of the enemy and our own issues.

Now, I ask a lot of questions when people automatically refer to the enemy when feeling down, discouraged or even depressed. All of the struggles we face in life can be an enemy of sorts to us, but that doesn’t mean they are demons attacking us. If we don’t know what enemy we are facing than we will most likely not be victorious in the battle at hand.

Don’t get me wrong, I am very convinced that the Devil and demonic spirits are not only real, but they do attack people. This is not only Biblical but I have stories that would make your skin crawl. That said, I think we have a tendency to blame the Devil for a lot more than we should give him credit for.

My reflection is also an encouragement to see if the there might be some reason for you feeling the way you do. Is it really the enemy or is it an internal battle of insecurity, fear, or rejection that Jesus wants to help you walk through and give you freedom from. If we blame the Devil for something that Jesus wants us to humbly submit to Him than it’s possible the spiritual warfare we are waging is actually against our freedom in Christ. What side of the war is the Devil really on when it comes to that?

Year after year Bubba’s wife pleaded with him to take her fishing, but he kept telling her she would not enjoy it. She finally wore him down so he consented, and early one morning they took off for the lake.

They had not been there very long when the fish began biting. Almost as fast as they cast, a fish would bite, and they reeled it in. After catching their limit, Bubba said, “Verna Lou, sweet thang, I’m sorry. You’ve been good luck and I’m gonna bring you with me the next time. If you’ll mark the spot where we caught all these fish, we’ll go home.”

On the way home, Bubba turned to Verna Lou and said, “Sweet thang, how did you mark the spot where all the fish are so next time I’ll know?”

“Bubba, darlin’, I put a big ‘X’ on the side of the boat right down closest to the water.”

“Sweet thang, that’s about the dumbest thing I ever seen you do. Don’t you know that won’t work? We may not get the same boat the next time!”

A young real estate man was showing a lady around a house that she wanted to look at before she could make any commitments.

They were on the second floor, also the top floor, when the man walked over to one of the windows that faced the road and yelled out, “Green side up!” The lady gave him a strange look, but she continued on with the man on the tour.

They got to the main floor, and again, after he had shown her all the rooms, he went over to a window that faced the road and yelled out, “Green side up!” The lady looked around, trying to figure out what the man was talking about, but she shrugged it off and followed him into the basement.

When they reached the basement, the man looked quickly out one of the windows that faced the road, rushed over, and yelled out, “GREEN SIDE UP!!!!!!!!”

Well, the lady couldn’t take it anymore, so she turned to the man and said, “Sir, why you must yell out, ‘Green side up’ out of the window constantly?”

The man laughed and replied, “Oh, I have some blondes across the street laying sod.”

Little Billy wanted $100 badly and prayed for two weeks but nothing happened.

Then he decided to write God a letter requesting the $100. When the postal authorities received the letter addressed to God, USA, they decided to send it to the President.

The President was so impressed, touched, and amused that he instructed his secretary to send Billy a $5.00 bill.

The President thought this would appear to be a lot of money to a little boy.

Billy was delighted with the $5.00 and sat down to write a thank you note to God, which read:

Dear God,

Thank you very much for sending the money, however, I noticed that for some reason you had to send it through Washington D.C. and, as usual, those crooks deducted $95.00.

Thanks,

Billy

“Can’t”, replied the farmer. “At night I haul water for the hole.”
