Why Go To Church?

This was sent to me and it is so true I just had to share.

A Church goer wrote a letter to the editor of a newspaper and complained
that it made no sense to go to church every Sunday.
“I’ve gone for 30 years now,” he wrote, “and in that time I have heard
something like 3,000 sermons. But for the life of me, I can’t remember a
single one of them. So, I think I’m wasting my time and the pastors are
wasting theirs by giving sermons at all.”

This started a real controversy in the “Letters to the Editor” column,
much to the delight of the editor.

It went on for weeks until someone wrote this clincher:
“I’ve been married for 30 years now.. In that time my wife has cooked
some 32,000 meals. But, for the life of me, I cannot recall the entire
menu for a single one of those meals. But I do know this. They all
nourished me and gave me the strength I needed to do my work. If my wife
had not given me these meals, I would be physically dead today.

Likewise, if I had not gone to church for nourishment, I would be
spiritually dead today!”

All I can say is AMEN!
