Late Comers to Church
Have you ever wondered what it is that some people are doing every Sunday morning why they are always late for church? Okay so here is my 2 cents! They have no regard for people’s time. Neither do they have any respect for the pastor. I am not talking about the person who is late once in a while now. I am talking about the persons who are late most or every Sunday.
You know why I know that they can do better? That same persons is sometimes the first person to get to work. When getting to church late becomes a habit then you are disrespecting the ushers, the praise team, the choir and all the persons who are involved in the service. Especially when you are a member of the church then this should be something that is the exception rather than the norm.
How would you feel if you were in charge and people just waltzed in anytime they felt like it. When it comes to the things of God sometimes we take too much of a que sera, sera attitude. I guess because we feel that God cannot fire us then it is okay to just treat this any old how. If we keep turning up to work late this might result in discipline or ever firing. Why then can we not give God to same courtesy by getting to His house of worship on time?
For the persons who are perpetual late comers to church it is time to turn over a new leaf. If you have kids to get ready, then teach them to select their clothes from Saturday night so that everything can be prepared. You should also prepare your clothes from Saturday night,. Try them on to make sure that they still fit. Do not wait until minutes to the time that church will start to look for your clothes. Chances are there might be some button missing or some other distraction. Selecting the clothes from over night will give you a chance to fix whatever problems there are.
Do you think the devil wants you to go to church? If he cannot stop you then he will make sure you are late. You have an idea how long it takes to get ready and get to church on time so take that into consideration. If it is not okay for you to go to work late then it is not okay for you to go to church late either.
