It’s Truly Free

Have you ever gone to a baseball game and been told by the person in the ticket booth, “Just contribute what you want, buddy. We don’t charge any set amount to get in”?

Have you ever been in a store, picked out what you wanted, and then as you left, put the money you felt was appropriate in a bucket at the door?

No way! But listen. Church is different!

Services of the church are provided to you year-round. You’re sick, you need special counseling, you need someone to pray with you—it doesn’t matter at all what you contribute. Just let your needs be known and one of the pastors is there to minister to you in Jesus’ name.

Now that’s an ongoing miracle, if you ask me. When you think about it, it’s hard not to thank the Lord for His church. There’s nothing like it, and you can be an active participant even if you’re broke.


I am grateful that I continue to hear how positively readers are responding to my latest book entitled The Sermon Sucking Black Hole—Why You Can’t Remember on Monday What Your Minister Preached on Sunday. This book is available at by clicking here.

In this book, I offer some solid tips to the people sitting in the congregation to help them remember what their pastor has said from the pulpit.
