The teacher of the third-grade Sunday School class was planning to take her students on a "field trip" to the church service, so they could get an idea of what morning worship looked like.


Before they left their classroom, she thought it would be a good idea to caution them against being noisy in those surroundings. Attempting to engage their attention, she asked, "And why do we need to be quiet in church?" One bright little boy replied, "Because people are sleeping in there."


Would anyone ever go to sleep in a worship service? Or how about during a prayer meeting or private prayer time? Did you ever fall asleep while praying? Who hasn’t?


From Steve Shepherd’s Sermon “Tis the Season to Worship Christ”
