I took a trip to the mall the other day To see what all the others would say Just to look around and watch them allIn the lobby of that big crowed mallAnd as I listened much to my surprise What they said surely opened my eyes A child playing alone with a new found toy Running around the room shouting joy A Mom and her love deep in thought No words but an expression was sought Two old service vets just biding for time And together they may have had a dime A young lady giving store samples away Her sales pitch was all she could say Two soon to be adults very heavy in talk They could really talk but not walk the walk Then came a beggar with clothing to match For a penny here and there just to snatch A nice young lady came by carrying a sign Moto's of which she failed to be so kind Two young ones talked of the welfare line Hoping to freely return back there on time The shocker was the surprise of the mall An elderly man started praying for us all Everyone stopped to hear his speech For to the heavens he did actually reach What an experience it was there for me I'm just proud for our freedom and liberty
"Heed instruction and be wise, And do not neglect it. Blessed is the man who listens to me, Watching daily at my gates, Waiting at my doorposts." (Proverbs 8:33-34)
Are you old enough to remember that old famous TV show "People are funny"? People Are Funny was an American radio and television game show, created by John Guedel that ran from 1942 to 1960 in which contestants were asked to carry out stunts in order to prove that "People Are Funny." Wikipedia
So are you a people watcher? I must admit, I've been there and done that. People are the most interesting sight in the world. Oftentimes I would sit in the mall while the wife and daughter would shop, just to observe people. I like to play certain people games. What are their professions? What is their social status? How did they vote and who did they vote for in the last election? And most importantly, do they attend church? Do they claim to be a Christian? Or are they simply just religious? There's a difference, you know.
What I really like is to strike up a conversation with a total stranger. You can learn a great deal, just by listening. What an opportunity to witness for the gospel.
Yes, a proven fact. People are funny.
