The Day the Dog Came to Church

Eager to enter

One morning a large dog tried to come into the church foyer as one of our members entered. She kept him out.

Moments later when the door opened again, in he came. We helped him back out.

Though Bible study was not on his canine mind, I did appreciate his eagerness.

What if everyone were as anxious to attend Bible class as that dog wanted in?

Eager to learn and do

The people of Berea “received the word with great eagerness, examining the Scriptures daily . . .” (Acts 17:11).

Bible study is, of course, not an end in itself. It is doing what the word says that blesses (James 1:22-25).

We didn’t have an obedience class for that dog, but we do have one for people—every Sunday morning at 9:30.
