Does God play tennis?
Years ago, I had an employee who always took his holidays during Wimbledon fortnight because of the tennis. We always thought he was very dedicated and he certainly knew a lot about the game and the many competing players.
I once asked him if he enjoyed the games and which ones did he attend.
"None ..." he said, "I didn't go to the games. I never do!"
This surprised me and I enquired further. Maybe he watched the games on TV? No ... he didn't do that either.
Apparently, every day he went to the local park not far from his home and listened to the games on his small radio. He said by not watching the games on TV he could sit there and imagine what was happening at Wimbledon and enjoy the atmosphere better.
Now I wonder, would we show as much dedication if our God asked us, once a week, to go and visit Him in church?
