There is such a dearth of support in my little church. No, no, that’s not right. I’m being too specific. It’s not just my church, It’s in general. There are not enough people stepping up and doing what is right. There have been many times now and in the past when I did not step up because of apathy, not having the time or just being plain laziness.
There is one man at my church who has always kept things going. He’s the proverbial glue that holds everything together. He’s always there and always prepared. Last Wednesday, on 4th of July, at our annual church picnic, I thought that I would tell him just how special he is. He was ever so modest. He couldn’t believe that I thought so highly of him. To him, it was just what he does. He saw a need and he filled it.We need more people like Mr. Green.
This made me think about why I’m not doing what I need to be doing. I could do so much more than I’m doing: at home, at work, and at church. I have become a bit of a slacker. I am writing this post to mark a starting point for me. When I put things on here, it seems to goad me into action.
Well, I am going to take action. As of today, there will be not as much laundry sitting on the back porch waiting for me to do. I can remember when I didn’t have a washer and dryer; when I used to go to the laundromat. I hated it. I felt that it was such a waste of my time; that there were better things that I could be doing with my time. That better thing now includes doing nothing. I can’t do that anymore. That is no longer me. I have changed in the past couple of years and I have decided that it is my time to step up; at home, at work, and at church.
Have you ever heard that story about everybody doing nothing because they figured that someone else would do it, but nobody did?
