Where the world comes to study the Bible

Church is Like Sports

Football in the fall.
Basketball in the winter.
Baseball in the spring and summer.
This pastor has been an avid sports fan all his life.

But I’ve had it! I quit this sports business once and for all.
You can’t get me near one of those places again.
Want to know why...
Every time I went, they asked me for money.

The people with whom I had to sit didn’t seem very friendly.
The seats were too hard and not at all comfortable.
I went to many games, but the coach never came to call on me.
The referee made a decision with which I could not agree.

I suspected that I was sitting with some hypocrites –
they came to see their friends and what others were wearing rather than to see the game.
Some games went into overtime, and I was late getting home.
The band played some numbers that I had never heard before.

It seems that the games are scheduled when I want to do other things.
I was taken to too many games by my parents when I was growing up.
I don’t want to take my children to any games, because I want
them to choose for themselves what sport they like best.
