Four friends talk at the coffee hour at church. The skit is intended as a lead-in to a sermon or skit written by you! This is just a tickler to get others thinking. The full presentation of the message comes in your sermon or devotion.

Matthew 20:1-16

Estelle: I see pastor is preaching on grumbling today.

Julie: I hear a lot of grumbling at work, thatís for sure.

Vaughn: When I was growing up it took too much time to grumble.

Estelle: Thatís silly, Vaughn. Why, I can grumble and work at the same time.

Vaughn: Well, at my house if my mom caught you grumbling she would make you stop whatever you were doing and write down five things you were grateful for.

Leon: Writing that list made you change your grumbling heart into a thankful one. She was a wise woman. Thatís a great idea.

Vaughn: Well, itís not so great when youíre 10 years-old. I remember one time grumbling about my brother. She let him go outside to play ball before his homework was done, but she was making me stay in until I finished mine. Not only did I have to finish my homework, but now because I grumbled about it, I had to write a list. Of course when I complained about that, she made me write five more things to be thankful for.

Julie: Well, I can easily think of ten things to be thankful for .

Vaughn: Well, I couldnít, and when I complained about having to come up with ten things the number grew to fifteen. I had to add liver and sauerkraut just to have enough things on my list to get out of there.

Leon: Iíll bet you got teased about that.

Vaughn: Everytime we had liver or sauerkraut.

Julie: Still, that was a wonderful way to get you to stop complaining and focus instead on the blessings God gives to each one of us every day.

Estelle: Letís do that right now. Letís all write down five things to be thankful for.

Leon: I donít know. I hate making lists. Anyway, I donít have a pen.

Julie: Thatís ten things for you, Leon.

END

Just this morning, in prayer meeting at church, I was prompted to confess my sin of grumbling! I asked God to help me bite my tongue, when I see so much in life that isn't right, and instead of complaining to see this as a prompting to pray! This is a wonderful skit, and I am delighted that I discovered it, when I came looking, here, to send you a thank you for your kind comment on my "Hope" entry for this week. God bless you, richly! And, thanks so much!
