Some church members are as stubborn as a mule about doing church work,
but as sly as a fox in their own business deals.
Some are as busy as a bee in spreading the latest gossip,
but as quiet as a mouse to spreading the gospel of Christ.
Many are as blind as a bat to see the needs of others,
but have eyes of a hawk to see the faults of a few.
Some are as eager as a beaver about a barbecue,
but as lazy as a dog about the prayer meetings.
Some will roar like a lion when things do not go just to suit them,
but they are as gentle as a lamb when they need the preacher of the church.
Some are as noisy as a blue jay when calling on the church for advice,
but as timid as a kitten about talking to the lost and as slow as a snail about visiting absentees and shut-ins.
Many are night owls on Saturday nights,
but “bed bugs” Sunday mornings,
and as scarce as hen’s teeth on Wednesday nights.
