One time a woman asked the preacher, "What should I do, Preacher? I want to follow and serve Jesus. I want to do his work totally and completely."

The preacher said, "Great, you could be a part our weekly ladies Bible study group and later you could perhaps lead it."

The woman replied, "Be a part of the ladies Bible study group! But Preacher, I really cannot get along with some of the people in that group. And I think some talk too much."

The preacher then said, "Okay, maybe you can just teach the children in the preschool Sunday School class twice a month, or maybe you can teach in our week long Vacation Bible School this summer."

"That may be a bit better," the woman replied, "But I would rather do something else. You know, Preacher, that I have little patience with noisy children that keep on running around."

"Well then, you can be a part our monthly visit to the depressed areas of the city to distribute food items to the poor, and assist in cleaning up their neighborhood," suggested the preacher.

The woman responded, "Oh Preacher, I love the poor. The only problem is that I am sensitive to odors, flies and mosquitoes. Isn’t there something else I can do?"
