Why Do People Go to Church

Some attend church to be seen, and wear their new clothes, While others sit on their pew and silently doze. During the service a few will check their cell phone, With messages they just can’t seem to postpone. Some men darken the church door out of fear, Because if they don’t their spouse won’t let them near. There are those that go to church because it is fun, They like to see their friends, and talk to everyone. Music lovers go to church because they love to sing, And others wait for the sermon the preacher will bring. Whatever your reason, God is watching from above. He knows your true heart, and is full of love.
