This is something that came across my desk several years ago and I have always kept it. It is great to remember.
Noah was a drunk. Abraham was too old. Isaac was a daydreamer, Jacob was a liar. Leah was ugly. Joseph was abused and was hated by his brothers. Moses stuttered. Gideon was afraid. Sampson was a womanizer and had long hair. Rahab was a prostitute. Jeremiah and Timothy were too young. David had an affair and was a murderer. Elijah was suicidal. Isaiah preached naked. Jonah ran from God. Naomi was a widow. Job went bankrupt. John the Baptist ate bugs. Peter denied Christ. The Disciples fell asleep while praying. Martha worried about everything. The Samaritan woman was divorced...more than once. Zaccheus was too small. Paul was too religious. Timothy had an ulcer...and Lazarus was DEAD.
No more excuses now! God can use us to our full potential. Besides, we aren't the message...but only the messenger. God ROCKS!
