What a Crew !!!

The next time you think you have an excuse why God can't use you, consider the following:

Noah was a drunkard...
Abraham was too old...
Isaac was a daydreamer...
Jacob was a liar...
Leah was ugly...
Joseph was abused...
Moses was a murderer...
Gideon was afraid...
Samson had long hair...
Rahab was a prostitute...
Timothy was too young...
David had an illicit affair...
Elijah was suicidal...
Isaiah preached naked...
Job was bankrupt...
John the Baptist ran around in a loin cloth and ate locusts...
Peter was hot-tempered...
John was self-righteous...
The disciples fell asleep while praying...
Martha fretted about everything...
Mary Magdalene was demon-possessed...
The boy with the fish and five rolls of bread was too obscure...
The Samaritan woman was divorced more than once, more than twice...
more than three times.......
Zacchaeus was too small...
Paul was too religious...
and Lazarus was dead...

Thank you for this wonderful reminder that we do NOT have to be perfect to be able to serve God...He knows our capabilities and our short comings and He wants us anyway...
wonderful news,
Mimi

Denise,

This is a great post and reminds us that no one is perfect. We all have fallen short. Praise God that He was willing to send His only son to pay for our sin.

Have a nice Father's Day with your Dad.

Love and blessings,
Mary
