A pastor named Wayne Field asks a series of profound questions:

“What would happen if we applied the same standards of loyalty to our Christian activities that we expect from other areas of our lives?

 If your car starts every three tries, is it reliable?

 If the post carrier skipped delivery every Monday and Thursday, is that trustworthy?

 If you don’t go to work once or twice a month, are you a reliable employee?

 If your fridge stops working for a day or two every now and then, do you say, “Oh, well, it works most of the time”?

 If your water heater provides an icy cold shower every now and then, is it dependable?

 If you skipped a couple of electricity bill payments do you think Pepco would mind?

 It you fail to worship God one or two Sundays a month, would you expect to be called a faithful Christian?

We expect loyalty and reliability from things and other people, isn’t it reasonable that God just might expect the same from us?”
