I’m leaving the church… A great reflection

A young man comes to the pastor and says, ‘Pastor, I won’t go to church any more!’

The pastor then replied, ‘But why?’

The young man said, ‘Well, I see the sister who speaks ill of another sister; The brother who does not read well; the singing group that sings out of sync; The people who during the sermon are watching the cell phone, among so many other things that are wrong  and I see them happening in the church.

The pastor said, ‘Good! But first, I want you to do me a favor: take a glass full of water and walk three times around the church without spilling a drop of water on the floor. After that, you can leave the church.’

And the young man thought: very easy! And he gave the three laps as the pastor asked him. When he finished he said: – I did it pastor.

And the pastor replied, ‘When you were spinning, did you see the sister speaking ill of the other?’

The young man said, – No

Have you seen people complaining about each other?

The young man said, – No

Did you see someone looking at the cellphone?

The young mansaid, – No

Do you know why?
–Because you were focused on the glass, to make sure you didn’t spill the water inside of it.  

The same happens in our lives. When our focus is Our Lord Jesus Christ, we won’t have time to see other people’s mistakes. THOSE WHO LEAVE  THE CHURCH BECAUSE OF PEOPLE, NEVER ENTERED BECAUSE OF JESUS​​…
