COWBOY IN CHURCH

One Sunday morning an Old Cowboy entered a Church just
before services were to begin. Although the Old Man and his
clothes were spotlessly clean, he wore jeans, a denim shirt
and boots that were very worn and ragged. In his hand he
carried a worn out old hat and an equally worn out Bible.

The Church he entered was in a very upscale and exclusive
part of the city. It was the largest and most beautiful
Church the Old Cowboy had ever seen. The people of the
congregation were all dressed with expensive clothes and
accessories.

As the Cowboy took a seat, the others moved away from him.
No one greeted, spoke to, or welcomed him. They were all
appalled at his appearance and did not attempt to hide it.

As the Old Cowboy was leaving the church, the Preacher
approached him and asked the Cowboy to do him a favor.
‘Before you come back in here again, have a talk with
God and ask him what he thinks would be appropriate attire
for worship.’

The Old Cowboy assured the Preacher he would..? The next
Sunday, he showed back up for the services wearing the same
ragged jeans, shirt, boots, and hat. Once again he was
completely shunned and ignored.

The Preacher approached the man and said, ‘I thought I
asked you to speak to God before you came back to our
Church.

‘I did,’ replied the Old Cowboy.

‘If you spoke to God, what did he tell you the proper
attire should be for worshiping in here?’ asked the
Preacher.

‘Well, Sir, God told me that He didn’t have a clue
what I should wear. He said He’d never been in this
Church before

Thanks FOM!
