You go to church
Wave your hands, say Amen,halleluah, thank you Lord
You sing, laugh, cry
Hear a lifting message from the Pastor
Hoping he will finish faster
You clap your hands,give an offering
Say amen, then depart
Thinking you have done your part
You are locked into routine
God wants to take you to places you have never seen
Take the limits off
Make a difference
Who have you lifted up today
Say a kind word to, give a hug
Show some love
Stop sitting on his premises
Thinking only of you
Others need to be blessed too
Bible study night has come
You say a prayer,thank you Lord
Get your understanding and knowledge of the Word, say amen, then depart
Thinking you have done your part
You are locked into routine
God wants to take you to places you have never seen
Take the limits off
Make a difference
Who have you clothed and fed
What faith confession have you lead
Stop sitting on his premises
Thinking only of you
Others need to be blessed too

Great verse. Very meaningful and makes one ponder whether they to are doing the very same thing week after week. One little suggestion, break up your poem into stanzas. it makes it easier to read.

"Say amen, then depart, thinking you have done your part..." This is the best line, and very pointed.
Sandy Hammock03/14/06
This is good. It might could be song lyrics.
Virginia Gorg03/16/06
Hmm, yes, a song - also makes us consider if we are merely making the motions or are we real? Nicely done.
Jessica Schmit03/16/06
This is great. I think every pastor should recite to this to his congregation to shake them up!Good job!

Apathy can creep into your life if your not careful. Some spaces between the lines would make this easier to read. I forget to do that myself sometimes.

Jesus said that the greatest in the Kingdom was the servant of all.

He also said (paraphrasing) to do your good deeds in secret and God will reward you openly.

I used to look at people and think they weren't doing much until I spied them doing something good in secret like the Bible says.
So while there are people who are apathetic, there are a lot of people who are doing good deeds in secret because they are doing it for God to see and they dont care whether you or I see it or not.
