“Sing to the Lord a new song.” Psalm 149:1
“But I don’t want to go,” Squirrel moaned,
“It’s boring,” Squirmles groaned.
Sunday morning was starting off rough,
Mom easily was frustrated with whiney stuff.
“Church is long and boring too,
I don’t think I can sit the whole way through.
Why do we have to go? We went last week,
It smells old and the pews creak.”
“I don’t want to go either,” Squirmles chimed in,
“In big church I don’t get to see my friends,
All the standing then sitting and singing gets old,
And the sanctuary is always cold.”
“Let me explain something to you as simple as I can,
We don’t go to church to see or serve man.
It’s our way of praising and worshiping the Lord,
So really there’s no reason for you to be bored.
“It’s a special place where we can meet to praise,
God loves to see us thank him in different ways.
Through prayer and song and the sermon too,
It’s our way of telling God ‘We want to know you.’ ”
What is your favorite thing about going to church?
What’s a special way you can tell/show God you love him?
