because it made me laugh. . .

when all you have is worms.”

we can have faith in faith
instead of trusting God.

we can worship worship
instead of worshiping God.

we can be diligent about being diligent
without being diligent about completing our tasks.

we can say prayers
instead of praying.

we can do bible studies
without really studying the bible.

i wonder how often we focus on means
rather than on the end?

despicable hireling,
when the wolf came into the sheepfold,
you took to your heels,
that it was better for the sheep to be left
to deal with the wolf on their own
than to see their shepherd
engaged in mortal combat
with the predator.

and you expect to be rewarded
for your sacrifice.
