An unknown author made some wise observations about Christian conduct. He said that if students went to school like some people go to church (when they feel like it), they would fail. If an employee went to work like some people go to the task of reaching others (indifferently), they would be fired. If a person ate meals like some partake of the Lord’s Supper (irregularly), they would starve. If one paid bills like some support the church (occasionally), they would have no credit. If a ballplayer played with as little intensity as some serve the Lord, he would be sitting on the bench. If one spoke to others as some pray to God, they would be branded as antisocial.
Wise observations indeed! Let’s put as much heart into serving the Lord as we do in the ordinary details of life.
