Here’s a bad poem to convey my chagrin, to all those who would drop these tracts into children’s Trick or Treat pail…sorry, but it just doesn’t work. Seriously stop…it’s annoying.
Stop, it’s not helping.
Stop, you’re making it harder for the rest of us.
Halloween candies were not provided
while eyes and words swiftly chided
an absence of sweets to children in dresses
hell fire papers inserted instead.
A look of defeat hidden by darkness
walk down the street recover this mess.
I got saved from a hell fire tract…
okay, not really…it was camp, in fact.
These paper witnesses do not attract
it’s annoying and it really detracts
Find another way to convey God’s word
instead of hell fire and some deadly swords.
I agree, time to change it up, the way we treat them when they come to the door says more for Jesus in our lives than a piece of paper for sure!
When i wrote this following blog. I was trying to recall reading something of yours and i came back and found this one of yours THANK YOU well put.
Here is the ironic other things that no one said, or did they?
I couldn’t help bu think how great it would be if someone commented on this post of yours and said, “ah, ya know actually, some seeds were planted from a track i got in my trick or treat bag.” LOL It could happen, but in the mean time i am all about not doing things with good intentions that is just plan annoying. Sometimes God’s children should be seen and not heard so i am letting my life and actions speak rather than buying tracks by the bulk load. Maybe THAT worked in the past (hope someone reading this says it did some how for them) but i totally feel ya on this on Pastor.
Thank you for being my pastor, i’ll take a virtual on-line one over non at all.
Keep up the good work.
1st Corinth. 3:6-7
I planted the seed, Apollos watered the plants, but God made you grow. 7 It’s not the one who plants or the one who waters who is at the center of this process but God, who makes things grow.
Plant those seeds, then we let people accept or reject but you’ve done your part in planting or ever watering what someone else planted.
