Late for Work Stressed Couple Checking Time in Kitchen.

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.

Please send me a message as to why you think you are late for church so often and what you think can be done to turn over a new leaf. So share any suggestions you have to help those who are always running late.  Respond in the message box or send an email to mardenec@hotmail.com

See you next time!

  1. Late is one thing but chatting no stop throughout the service is a thing that aggravates me to the max. I wonder if you cannot wait until the service has ended to socialize and talk about God knows what with that church brother or sister. Sometimes I make it my point of duty to let them know cellphone are available so we can communicate during the course of the week and not during the service. I couldn’t careless what the individual things but when it comes to my worship experience, I need no distractions at all. I agree with you totally Fashionable Librarian…..

    I agree that it is nice to be on time. I would love to be on time!!
    I have sometimes wondered if it is a spiritual battle that is going on. I know many couples (me and my wife included) who fight more on Sunday morning than any other day of the week. My kids are sulky, drag their feet, obey slooooowwwwwwly. Then they enjoy church when we get there.

    I had to laugh at your post. My family and i are late to church. Almost every sunday. (More in 1 second) We go to church with another couple who are late every time they come. Why? They have two autistic sons who are a huge amount of work. I assure you that no one begrudges them their lateness.
    My lateness is not my choice. I would be early for everything. I am married to a woman who may well be late for her funeral. She is such a details person that she just never makes it anywhere on time.
    This drives me nuts. God however has been gently reminding me that i used to judge my father who was never on time. He also has reminded me that he loves us enough to take us around mountains more than once if we need to go.
    My advice? Let it go. There are many more important things in following Jesus that who is or isnt on time to church.

    • Hhahahahahahahahahahahahahaha..I just an observation…thanks for visiting and thanks for taking the time to respond. I think we can do better though…sometimes meetings cannot start because there is nobody to start it with and I think that is a problem. I know that there are times when people are late for perfectly legitimate reasons but as I said before we can do better.

    • I am not losing any sleep over it but at the same time I have seen too many programs cut short because of tardiness on the part of members. I am saying the same courtesy that we give to our jobs why not show it at church since heads would roll for many people if they are constantly late for work. IJS
