Smoke Screens of a drunk in church

Smoke screen

Today’s #ChurchForTheStreets is a simple story of a guy I know who barely goes to church.

He smokes and drinks heavy too. He had started to feel exhausted from the emptiness.  But this particular  Sunday, he decided to go with his mom wearing his plaited braids and the only type of clothes he had; faded and torn jeans and boots he is comfortable with.  Everyone just kept staring at him funny. The usher made him sit at the back for no reason. He didn’t want him showing up in the picture-perfect image of elites in suits and native at the front seats.

And while in service at the back, his phone rang in church playing Davido’s song as a ringtone by accident during prayers. Everyone just turned in a murmur. As if it wasn’t embarrassing enough, openly, the pastor scolded him.  And then the pastor diverted his sermon into being carnal. It must have felt like hell while in church for this young man.

His mom who was a church worker kept on lecturing him on his carelessness all the way home.  During the evening she brought it up again. Having heard enough of his mistake for one night, he got up the dinner table and decided to take a walk to a bar nearby.

He had his mind made up, that he’d never step foot in the church again. Heaven just lost a soul!

At the bar, while deep in thoughts about it, he spilled his drink on the table by accident.

The waiter unlike the pastor this time apologized and gave him a napkin to clean himself.

The janitor mopped the floor. The female manager offered him a complimentary drink.
She also gave him a huge hug and a kiss while saying, “Don’t worry man. Who doesn’t make mistakes?”

He felt better and even bought more drinks that night. He was going to stop drinking. But after then, he has never stopped going to that bar since then.

Lesson:
You can make a difference by how you treat people, especially when they make mistakes. You can’t tell how they feel already.

This year judge less and make someone’s betterment your personal project without judging them. We are all going through stuffs too. Since we know no one who has gone to heaven to see God and back,  I put it to you that you are the only God some people may ever see. Represent Him well.
