All the comforts of home

As I  watched a program on tv, the images of thousands standing in a huge dirt parking lot, no chairs, no great sound system, no bathrooms, just a yearning to hear the word of God. We are so spoiled and have such ridiculous expectations of what we need to be comfortable. The great sound system and power point, the cushioned pews and the lovely bathrooms, enormous kitchens and decorations that seem endless, beautiful stained glass windows (Love them) and the question comes. If I were elsewhere and had not all the comforts so taken for granted, would I be willing to stand outside in the elements to hear the word of God ? Or would I decide it was just not worth it.

The Whisper: Thank you Lord for the abundant life! Forgive me for being so selfish. AMEN
