Pastor Uses Glass of Water to Get Church Members Attention

Pastor Uses Glass of Water to Get Church Members Attention – The Story of the Pastor, Church Member and a glass of water. Is your focus on God or other things around you?

A man went to the Pastor of his church and said, “I won’t be attending Church anymore.”

Pastor said, “May I ask why?”

He said, “I see people on their cell phones texting and typing during the service, some are gossiping, some just aren’t living right, some are sleeping, some are staring at me, they are all just hypocrites.”

The Pastor was silent. Then he said, “Can I ask you to do something for me before you make your final decision?”

He said, “Sure, what’s that?”

He said, “Take a glass of water and walk around the church two times and don’t let any water fall out of the glass.”

He said, “Yes I can do that!” He went and got the glass of water and walked around the church two times. He came back and said proudly, “It’s done.”

The pastor asked him these questions; “Did you see anybody on their phone?; Did you see anybody gossiping?; Was anybody living wrong?; Did you see anyone sleeping?”

He said, “I didn’t see anything because I was so focused on this glass, so the water wouldn’t spill out”

He told him, “When you come to church , you should be just that focused on God , so that you don’t fall. That’s why Jesus said, ‘Follow Me’, He did not say follow them.”

Don’t let your relationship with God be determined by how others relate with God. Let it be determined by how focused you are with God.

AMEN

  • Not sure who first started this story. Some stories say the church member was a woman, others say a man. I am sure there are other variations of this too.
