One morning a pastor stood in front of his congregation and said
"This morning I only have 3 points. Point number 1, their are over 2 billion people starving to death today around the world. Point number 2, most of you don't give a dam. Point number 3, the greatest tragedy of our faith today is that more of you are angry that I said dam in church than you are that 2 billion people are starving to death in the world."
Are you focusing on the real issue at heart
Petty people get excited about petty issues, but significant people get excited about significant issues. You can tell a lot about people by what excites them. We have plenty of sports fans, and that is great, but we also need to be fans of values that have lasting meaning.
Focus on the core issues at hand.
