It’s Sunday morning and the faithful have gathered. There aren’t very many empty seats at Hometown Friends Church this week. My mind strays from what’s doing on around me and I ask myself if being here helps make me righteous or does it just make me feel self-righteous. The difference can be subtle, but it’s significant. When we pull into our garage in about an hour, our neighbors will know where we’ve been. But they don’t really care whether or not we attend church. What they care about and what they observe is our attitudes and actions. Are we considerate, compassionate, loving, and nonjudgmental? Or are we self-centered?

This might be the easiest hour of the week.
