I read an amusing summary of types of folks you may find in churches. Written by an anonymous author, it is entitled “TATER PEOPLE”…
Some people are very bossy and like to tell others what to do, but don’t want to invest in work themselves. They are called “Dick Taters”.
Some people never seem motivated to participate, but are just content to watch while others do the work. They are called “Speck Taters”.
Some people never do anything to help, but are gifted at finding fault with the way others do the work. They are called “Comment Taters”.
Some people are always looking to cause problems by stirring the pot of conflict and discontent. They are called “Agie Taters”.
There are those who say they will help, but somehow just never do. They are called “Hezzie Taters”.
Some people can put up a front and pretend to be someone they are not. They are called “Emma Taters”.
Then there are those who love and do what they say they will. They are always prepared to stop whatever they are doing and lend a helping hand. They bring real sunshine into the lives of others. They are called “Sweet Taters”.
Sweet Taters, you know some, maybe you are one. Sweet taters are encouragers, faith builders and have the ability to transform bitter times into sweet. As I read the Bible, I believe they are treasured by God.
As we move into the season of Lent, would you join me on a journey—To transform what may be bitter into sweet. Experiences, relationships, even mundane duties bear fresh fruits of the Spirit of God as we apply His love, joy and peace.
