Hitchhikers

With his thumb, the hitchhiker-says, "You furnish the car, the gas and oil, attend to repairs and upkeep, supply the insurance, and I'll ride with you. However, if you have an accident,. I'll sue you for everything you have." 'That's pretty one-sided it seems to me.

Think of hitchhikers in the church! They seem to say, "You furnish the building, the: preacher, lights, air conditioning, the :insurance, -all the educational material, and take care of the general building upkeep; and we'll ride alone with you. If things don't suit us, we'll complain, criticize, and probably hitchhike to another church. We'll give ten. dollars to 'keep the record .straight: but let others pay the BIG bills."  Let's be careful -.that we "bear our own burden" (Gal. 6:5). We are "pilgrims" not hitchhikers (1 Pet. 2:11).

For His Cause,
