My brothers formed a club
when I was five years old. They had a neat clubhouse (an old, dusty tool
shed) a thriving membership (three or four other kids), and a membership
policy (you had to be at least six years old to join).
Do the math--I was out! "I
can't wait until next year," I said, "then I'll be old 'nough
to join your club." My brother was quick to reply, "by then the
age requirement will be seven."
Now, don't start feeling
sorry for me. The truth is, I was a scrawny little "tag-a-long"
brother. I'm sure my brothers got tired of having to walk slower so I could
keep up, or watching
me while Mom and Dad went
somewhere. They just wanted some peace and quiet.
Have you ever been left out
of something important? How did it make you feel?
I remember the first building
program I ever led. At that time, the Church only averaged 25 people and
yet they sold their small building to relocate and build a much larger
building. With the help of other Churches, we successfully built the building
with a total cost of $27.00 a square foot, about half the going rate. You
would think that in such a small church, everyone would get involved. They
didn't. After the building program, one family criticized me for not nudging
them to get involved when they did not respond to the general appeal. I
thought, "great, not only did you leave me to do most of the work,
but now I'm the bad guy because you didn't do your part." Why were
they mad? They felt left out.
Being left out of a club,
or a building program is one thing--missing eternal life is another one.
If you've never accepted Jesus as your Savior and Lord, why not do so today.
If you have, why not share
your faith with someone.
