It always troubles me that people do not pratice what they preach, especially when it is God they talk about all the time and yet their actions reflect something quite the opposite. It seems to me that the more from the vocal chords the less from the heart.
When in church, I watch these people preach, lead prayers, sing hymns, and I tell myself I am watching a performance. Then I ask myself why on earth I would want to see bad actors perform while at home I can always turn on my TV, pop a disk into my DVD player and watch Matt Damon play Jason Bourne.
Then I have to remind myself that I go to church because of my faith in God, not because of people. But it is so hard to ignore such noisy performers around me.
