Sunday snicker

008

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 a 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.

But 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 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 here before.”
