What kind of tater are you?Posted Thursday, September 8, 2011, at 1:34 PM
I always leave church with many things to think about. Our minister at United Methodist Church Missy Brown always gives a good sermon. She has a way of throwing in a few jokes throughout her talks - we are not afraid to laugh out loud, either and I like that; church does not always have to be so serious. There is a lot of seriousness in the sermons as well and that is another reason I like her talks.
Pastor Missy's sermons get us all thinking about our lives and whether or not we are living our lives the way God wants us to.
Last Sunday, she asked us all what kind of "taters" we were. At first I wondered if she was taking our orders for taters 'cause I do love taters. And then I listened more carefully.
* Some people never seem motivated to participate, but are just content to watch while others do the work.
They're called "Speck Taters".
* Some people never do anything to help, but are gifted at finding fault with the way others do the work.
They're called "Comment Taters".
3. Some people are very bossy and like to tell others what to do, but don't want to soil their own hands.
They're called "Dick Taters".
* Some people are always looking to cause problems by asking others to agree with them. It is too hot or too cold, too sour or too sweet.
They're called "Agie Taters".
* There are those who say they will help, but somehow just never get around to actually doing the promised help.
They're called "Hezzie Taters".
* Some people can put up a front and pretend to be someone they are not.
They're called "Emma Taters".
* Then there are those who love others 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're called "Sweet Taters".
She did it again; left me with things to think about.
What kind of "tater" are you?
