We’ve all been around when someone’s cell phone went off at the worst possible time. I know I’ve definitely shot a side-eye before in the theatre when I was engrossed in a movie and someone’s phone went off–RING! So when I came across the following story online, it definitely made me think! The following story is about a man whose cell phone went off during church. But what happened next, is a real eye-opener!
Story About A Man Whose Cell Phone Went Off In Church
A man went to church. He forgot to switchoff [sic} and his phone rang during prayer. The pastor scolded him. The worshippers admonished him after prayers for interrupting the silence. His wife kept on lecturing him on his carelessness all the way home. One could see the shame, embarrassment and humiliation on his face. After all this, he never stepped foot in the church again.
That evening, he went to a bar. He was still nervous and trembling. He spilled his drink on the table by accident. The waiter apologized and gave him a napkin to clean himself. The janitor mopped the floor. The female manager offered him a complimentary drink. She also gave him a huge hug and a peck while saying, “Don’t worry man. Who doesn’t make mistakes?”. He has not stopped going to that bar since then.
Lesson: Sometimes our attitude as believers drives souls to Hell. You can make a difference by how you treat people, especially when they make mistakes.
