Have You Ever Noticed

By Wes Brown, Jamestown, NC

††††††††††††††† That the person who contributes the least complains the most about how things are done?

††††††††††††††† That one who is legalistic toward others wants others to be overly gracious to them?

††††††††††††††† That a fault-finding person is actually condemning the same flaw in their own life?

††††††††††††††† That the one who bemoans others not calling/visiting them in their time of need, does not minister to others in their need?

††††††††††††††† That a person who is the most resistant to submitting to spiritual authority desires to lord their own spirituality over others?

††††††††††††††† That the person with the beam in their own eyes is the quickest to judge others?

††††††††††††††† That most folks are more concerned about the temporal affairs of the church, rather than the eternal matters?

††††††††††††††† That the one who ministers the least harps the most about what is not being done?

††††††††††††††† That people who are reluctant, miserly stewards of the Lordís money are the most dissatisfied with the stewardship of the church at large?

††††††††††††††† That the person with the unyielding opinion is the first to bail out when things donít go their way?

††††††††††††††† That those who donít let someone know about their need complain the most about not having their need met?

††††††††††††††† That those who insist on doing everything their way (the only way), donít follow the lead of others very well?

††††††††††††††† That constant subjective thinking is conducive to nearsightedness?
