Waste of time?

  A Church goer wrote a letter to the editor of a newspaper and complained  that it made no sense to go to church every Sunday. "I've gone for 30 years  now," he wrote, "and in that time I have heard something like 3,000 sermons.
   But for the life of me, I can't remember a single one of them.  So, I  think I'm wasting my time and the pastors are wasting theirs by giving  sermons at all."

  This started a real controversy in the "Letters to the Editor" column, much  to the delight of the editor.  It went on for weeks until someone wrote this  clincher: "I've been married for 30 years now.  In that time my wife has  cooked some 32,000 meals. But for the life of me, I cannot recall the entire  menu for a single one of those meals.  But I do know this: They all  nourished me and gave me the strength I needed to do my work. If my wife had  not given me these meals, I would be physically dead today.  Likewise, if I  had not gone to church for nourishment, I would be spiritually dead today!"

  When you are DOWN to nothing.... God is UP to something!  Faith sees the  invisible, believes the incredible and receives the impossible!  Thank God  for our physical AND our spiritual nourishment!
