My Own Cynical Sunday Sermon...

I know, we should all give service, and be charitable, but I'm in some sort of mood today!  Why is it that we are ALWAYS helping the SAME people?  Seriously, week after week, year after year?? Yes, I actually went to church today, and what I heard was great, and actually has nothing to do with why I'm writing this now.  But someone from our church called my husband last week, - again - for help with their car.  Now, I know Santo can't take the time to 'teach this person to fix his own damn car', but isn't ther that old saying "Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; Teach a man to fish and you feed him always."  So why is it, that this so-called charity we give is to the same people - over and over again. I'm sorry, but it feels less and less like charity each time you give these people your service. (I know, I'm going to Hell - No Surprise there) But seriously, I'm having issues.  When do these people learn to better THEMSELVES? I think, unfortunately, that so many of these people fall into the 'helpless zone' and WANT to stay there.  Of course they do, no responsibility on their own shoulders. Just let everyone else do it for you.  Now, don't get me wrong, I honestly do enjoy helping people out, and I am willing to give charity, but when it's REALLY charity, not just because someone wants to take advantage of me again, and again, and again...  When it's really charity, I feel great, proud and honored to help out.  When it's the 10th time in one year with little or NO effort on their part, I feel USED.  Ther are no physical limitations holding this person back from keeping a full time job. (Mental ??  Maybe, but nothing clinically diagnosed; just apathy) And if they would try keeping any sort of job for a while, maybe they could spend a few bucks and get their car checked out by a garage.  My lover hasn't been home for more that about 24 hours in the last week, (because he's one of those people with a full-time job - and then some,) so yeah, I'm a little selfish when they want him to take more time away from home and family to be USED again. ( Satan, leave the light on for me.. I'm sure I'll be there soon.)

Anyway, I haven't updated the blog for a while, so I thought, "What the Hell... I'll teach the Sunday School Lesson today - and vent it all out on my blog!"  Hope you enjoyed the Cynical Sermon -  Be Happy, and Be Charitable!  :)

  1. If Santo has time after helping everyone else with their cars, can he help this single lady with her plumbing? haha... Seriously, My water faucet is broken, but I'm just giving you crap. I'm calling a plumber. I just couldn't resist asking Santo to help with mine! Love you! You are both great people and I hope you get some quality time with your man soon! Tara
