Sunday funnies

One Sunday morning, an old man wearing patched overalls, a faded shirt, and a frayed jacket entered a church just as the service was about to begin. The church was in an affluent part of town, and everyone in the congregation was very expensively dressed. None of them greeted or welcomed the visitor.

After the service was over, the minister approached the old man and said, “Before you come back here again, have a talk with God and ask Him what He thinks is the proper attire to wear to church.”

The old man assured the minister that he would. The following Sunday, he showed up again, dressed exactly as he had been the week before. The minister took him aside and said, “I thought I asked you to speak to God before you came back here.”

“I did,” said the old man. “But He told me that He didn’t have a clue what I should wear. He said He’d never been inside here before.”

    • Luckily for me, not the one I attend. We must be about the motliest congregation around, and you could probably show up in almost any getup without raising any eyebrows, and you’d be welcomed. 🙂

    If Jesus went there, he probably wouldn’t meet their standards either.

    Unless you wear an obviously blasphemous article of clothing, I don’t think that Jesus cares what you wear to worship Him. It’s unfortunate that some Christians judge others based on appearances. 1 Samuel 16:7, anyone?
