One Entrepreneur's Journey To Find Greatness


Don’t Get All Simon Cowell On Me

I don’t normally even open email forwards, but I did the other day and found this gem. 
Quick Lesson in Judgment

I was shocked, confused, bewildered
As I entered Heaven’s door,
Not by the beauty of it all,
Nor the lights or its decor.

But it was the folks in Heaven
Who made me sputter and gasp–
The thieves, the liars, the sinners,
The alcoholics and the trash.

There stood the kid from seventh grade
Who swiped my lunch money twice.
Next to him was my old neighbor
Who never said anything nice.

Herb, who I always thought
Was rotting away in hell,
Was sitting pretty on cloud nine,
Looking incredibly well.

I nudged Jesus, ‘What’s the deal?
I would love to hear Your take.
How’d all these sinners get up here?
God must’ve made a mistake.

‘And why is everyone so quiet,
So somber – give me a clue.’
‘Hush, child,’ He said, ‘they’re all in shock.
No one thought they’d be seeing you.’

Judge not & Remember…

Just going to church doesn’t make you a Christian any more than standing in your garage makes you a car.

Every saint has a PAST…
Every sinner has a FUTURE!

    Gah. Christians really need to stop with the forwards. http://ChristiansBreakingChainFwds.ning.com

    Capri, although I personally am not a fan of receiving mass spam forwards I am curious as to why you are so opposed? Your post here didn't provide any original thought and is pretty clearly spam for your website, I'll leave it up because I think you hypocrisy is amusing. Just curious, would Buddhist forwards be acceptable?
