If you remember the old "Merv Griffin Show," then perhaps you will remember the episode when Merv had a body-builder on the program as a guest. Mr. Griffin asked the man why he developed some of his particular muscles to such a degree. Without an answer the man flexed and the audience applauded. Again, he asked, "But what do you use those muscles for?" Once more the giant showed his defined figure, pumping his biceps. Finally, Griffin asked once more what he used all of his muscles for?! The body-builder didn't have an answer.
I am pretty sure that many of you readers out there know a good portion of the Bible. You may know about the church, worship, how to pray, teach lessons, et cetera. Many of us, by perpetual activity and the providence of being raised in the kingdom of God, are well-defined. We have the goods, but what have we developed them for? May God help us not to just be posers.
"But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves." ~ James 1:22

  1. You are on to something. I believe people posing in the church added to the questions and concerns I have had about organized religion. Thankfully, you have helped to sort out some questions I had. Great job.
