Isaac was a daydreamer
Jacob was a liar
Joseph was abused
Moses stuttered
Gideon was afraid
Samson was a womanizer
Rahab was a prostitute
Jeremiah was too young
David was an adulterer
Elisha was suicidal
Isaiah preached naked
Jonah ran from God
Naomi was a widow
Job went bankrupt 
John the Baptist ate bugs
Peter denied Christ
Zacchaeus was too small
Paul was too religious
the disciples fell asleep
Martha worried
Timothy was too young
Lazarus was dead
the Samaritan woman had many failed marriages

What's your excuse?

    Debbie, it is quite a list.

    Dewena, have you thought about it?

    Sherri, sometimes I hate having no excuses! -grin-

    Sparky, always preaching to the choir, doncha know? -grin-

    Vickie, you're welcome.

    Quinn, I laughed as well the remembered David who danced naked before the Lord. His wife, Michal, laughed and God struck her barren.

    Cheryl, God isn't as stupid as humans -grin-.

    Jill, it was funny!

    Charlotte, every single one of us.

    Dori, I've seen it before but this time was in a Joel Osteen book.
