From Pastor Davies – 7/6
Two men had just met at a party. “What do you do for a living?” one asked the other. “I work in a clock factory,” he replied. “Oh? And what exactly do you do?” the first man asked. “Just stand around all day and make faces,” he said with a smile.
Doesn’t it seem that some people just “stand around all day and make faces?” We wonder why they aren’t as conscientious or productive or efficient or disciplined or serious as we are. We dismiss them as being lazy or silly – or perhaps even inferior. We pat ourselves on the back, congratulating ourselves for being concerned about the important things in life. But are we?
Often we become so consumed with the busyness of our days that we leave little or no time for simply enjoying God’s gift of life. God wants us to live joyfully every day – whatever our circumstances may be. How are you doing?
Have a blessed week. And see you in worship this Sunday.
