The Question and Its Implications

Out of the mouths of babes

As I was walking toward the church building, a cute little guy came riding by on his bike.

“Are you going to church?” he asked. “Yes,” I answered. He then asked, “Is this church day?”

What a revealing question! To his parents was Sunday merely a day to take it easy, catch up on housework, or what?

In contrast

Growing up, my dad never heard his parents discuss whether or not to attend services. They just went (Hebrews 10:24-25).

The church was so much a part of their lives that it had a profound impact on my dad’s values and life choices.

But how would he have turned out had his parents’ priorities been different?

I wonder, whatever became of the little fellow who had to ask, “Is this church day?”
