The chatter continued while I thought of everything else we should be going over. Our finances are a very important matter we should be reviewing. Are we tithing the proper amount? Should we be giving more? There are so many worthy causes and at the end of the month there is always extra.
Then there is that trip we have been talking about for several years. We could do a lot over there helping. There are so many children and adults that would benefit from us spending time there and sharing our talents with them.
I glanced at my watch again. Another twenty minutes had past and the murmuring still continued. This is ridiculous, we need to just make a decision.
This is the way we have always made decisions, coming together and working through all our issues. If this was a major topic, I could see a long discussion and a split between us. This minor consideration should not have caused such an uproar.
We have lost complete focus on God if we are arguing over such a trivial matter.
I know we are not all in harmony. Mary and Susan are still fussing with one another. I don’t see why we can’t forgive each other and work together for the good of everyone. As a family, surely we can agree on something this simple.
Finally after a few more minutes the pastor spoke.
“Okay, I want everyone to search their hearts and realize that whatever decision the majority makes we need to stand with them and move forward. Any more discussion?”
After 20 seconds of complete silence the pastor held up a swatch. “All those in favor of getting this color of carpet, raise your hands.”
