This is like the parishioner that spends so much time fussing that a new visitor has taken ďtheirĒ seat, they canít even enjoy the service or the fact that God has brought in someone new! This is excellently written with powerful, slap-in-the-face message!

This is a powerful message that we spend time getting upset over foolish things and missing what is important. I lost a Bible and was beating myself up over it but then my husband told me that perhaps someone found it and kept it and that it may be a blessing for that person. That put my mind at ease. If a lost Bible could bring someone into a close and loving relationship with God, then I am thankful that I lost it. Thanks for this wonderful story.

A gentle reminder to stay focused on the Lord who was always being interrupted, instead of on habits that may be good in themselves, but which are not absolutely essential.

Great reminder of how the little things become monumental and steal our joy! God help us all!!!
