But the next Sunday, he showed back up for the services wearing the same ragged jeans, shirt, boots and hat.
Once again he was completely shunned and ignored. The preacher approached the man and said, “I thought I asked you to speak to God before you came back to our church.”
“I did,” replied the old cowboy.
“If you spoke to God, what did he tell you proper attire should be for worshiping in here?” asked the preacher.
“Well, sir, God told me that He didn’t have a clue what I should wear. He said He’d never been in here before.”
Ouch! What a comeback.
In failing to realize the true purpose of church, it seems that this congregation is the one truly in need of a make-over.
A man should be judged by his soul, not by his appearance or the clothing on his back.
After-all… Jesus did wear sandals.
