Pardon Me, but I’ve Been Doing Some Thinking πŸ’­Β 

Pardon me –  my best polite apology, I’m sorry ….but, I’ve been doing some thinking πŸ€” ….this time more than ever πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

I’ve been thinking …..

 About reasons why people do things and I will be attempting to reason out their rationalization …. and then end with my honest opinions 

Here are 5 reasons people go to the Supermarket:

  1. The cupboards are bare
  2. Hubby AND children are going to ask “What’s for dinner?”
  3. Quality – almost guaranteed it isn’t going to be expired 
  4. Convenience 
  5. When you ONLY ONE ingredient (yeah right)

5 reasons people go to the Gym

  1. To exercise 
  2. Health reasons 
  3. To socialize 
  4. To reduce stress
  5. Boost self esteem

Here are 5 reasons people do Drug Trafficking:

  1. Poverty
  2. Bad company 
  3. Profit
  4. Corruption
  5. High demand 

I warned you that I’ve been thinking – so stay with me now. The journey just got started.

5 reasons people get Married:

  1. Truly in love
  2. Maturity 
  3. Financial security 
  4. Children 
  5. Lifelong friendships 

5 reasons people Get Up and Go To Work:

  1. You need that paycheck 
  2. Loved ones are depending on you
  3. Benefits 
  4. Need to have Purpose
  5. Maintain a standard of living

5 reasons people go to Church:

  1. To worship God with other likeminded people 
  2. Clarity of the Bible – example- your guilty consciences have been sprinkled with Christ’s blood to make US CLEAN (great one for me. It’s purging, no excess baggage)
  3. Church attendance strengthens your faith
  4. Promotes stability in your life
  5. Positively influences future generations 

β€œlet us go right into the presence of God with sincere hearts fully trusting him. For our guilty consciences have been sprinkled with Christ’s blood to make us clean, and our bodies have been washed with pure water.” ‭‭Hebrews‬ ‭10:22‬ ‭NLT‬‬

πŸ‘πŸΎπŸ‘πŸΎπŸ‘πŸΎ Now for The Home Run: This one is the heart ❀️ of my thinking. It’s my real ‘biggie’ and ‘my pet peeve’ :

MANY Reasons (I did NOT say 5 reasons as before) why people SAY they do NOT go to church:

  1. Church is filled with a bunch of hypocrites ( have you checked out your job, gym, supermarket, relationships)
  2. All they care about is your money ( this sounds more like it – LOL)
  3. There’s no God, it’s whitewash ( Maybe the creator of you, your family, the breath you breathe, the sun, stars, earth, sea, night and day is a genie in a bottle)
  4. I don’t have my life together ( Breaking News – nobody has either) 
  5. It’s way too long and boring ( work and school days are too)
  6. Churches are organized religion (Are disorganized churches better? )
  7. Bad experience ( who hasn’t had one? Check your favorite store, your children, spouse and relationships)
  8. Watching online church is my Preference ( really? Just like Common law relationships – no commitment )
  9. I can worship God at home ( if God is a resident in your home – why do you go to the doctor, hospital, marriage counselor, lawyers)
  10. Sunday is the only day I get to take care of my personal needs ( God can certainly help you with that by making you become unemployed)
  11. The only day I can sleep in ( quick fix for God. Take away your sleep) 
  12. Church is irrelevant ( like most of us)
  13. Fear of being judged (by who? Other sinners who go to church. It’s like not going to the doctor because the other people will think you’re sick) LOL 
  14. They only preach hell and damnation (it’s called Reality Check in preparation for after death)
  15. Don’t trust the Pastors ( They are NOT the only ones who don’t trust YOU either)
  16. Don’t like the new songs ( neither did you like your new laptop) 
  17. Church has changed ( Babies diapers need to be changed according to the demand)
  18. I can meditate at home ( please update me to which room  in the house I can find a quiet time) 
  19. I don’t feel closer to God ( maybe you haven’t spoken to Him for a while) 
  20. I DO NOT WANT TO GO ( Love your honesty) 

For the righteous minded persons like myself (LOL)   – the dictionary meaning for the phrase ‘pissing off’ is “To make someone angry or annoyed”….so let’s read this quote over in proper Christlike way so I DO NOT offend anyone πŸ‘ŽπŸ½

“As I have grown older, I’ve learned that ‘pleasing’ EVERYONE is IMPOSSIBLE, but making EVERYONE Angry or Annoyed is a PIECE of CAKE.” 

Goal: To surround myself with those who see greatness in me πŸ™πŸΎ
