Who Cares?

My little children, let us not love in word or in tongue, but in deed and in truth.
1 John 3:18, NKJV

Here’s a Quarter (Call Someone Who Cares) is a 1991 country song by Travis Tritt where a man tosses a quarter to a woman who had broken his heart so she could place a local call at a pay phone. I thought of it the other day upon hearing the story of the church that branded itself as cool and popular. Their praise and worship service was quite the show. Not long ago, the Pastor handed out a sheet of paper to the congregation. It listed all the churches in the area whose ministers visited the sick. The Pastor told his flock that if they were hospitalized, he would not be there, and instructed them simply to call anyone on the list. Celebrity Pastors receiving Sunday’s offering while outsourcing Monday’s ministry are truly just Celebrities.
