Isn’t it strange?

The below was sent to me last week. I hope and pray that in 2015, by God’s grace, it is not true of you and me.

Isn’t it strange?

To one who has faith, no explanation is necessary.
To one without faith, no explanation is possible.
Thomas Aquinas (Italian Catholic priest, philosopher & theologian: 1225-1274)

  • Isn’t it strange how 50 dollars seems like such a large amount when you give it to your church, but such a small amount when you go shopping?
  • Isn’t it strange how 2 hours seem so long when you’re at church, and how short they seem when you’re watching a good movie?
  • Isn’t it strange that you can’t find a word to say when you’re praying but you have no trouble thinking what to talk about with a friend?
  • Isn’t it strange how difficult and boring it is to read one chapter of the Bible but how easy and interesting it is to read 100 pages of a popular novel?
  • Isn’t it strange how everyone wants front-row-tickets to concerts or games but they do whatever is possible to sit at the last row in Church?
  • Isn’t it strange how we need to know about an event for Church 2-3 weeks before the day so we can include it in our agenda, but we can adjust it for other events in the last minute?
  • Isn’t it strange how difficult it is to learn a fact about God to share it with others; but how easy it is to learn, understand, extend and repeat gossips?
  • Isn’t it strange how we believe everything that magazines and newspapers say but….. we question the words in the Bible?
  • Isn’t it strange how everyone wants a place in heaven but they don’t want to believe, do, or say anything to get there?
