Cowboy Sermon – Kwitchyerbellyachin’

by Kevin on November 28, 2011

Three cowboys went to bed one night and was visited by an angel from the Lord. They stared in fright as the room filled with radiance that could never come from an oil lamp.

The angel told them that the next morning, all the words they had ever spoken would be made alive in the form of their mount they would ride every day. Before any questions could be asked, the angel caused them to fall into a deep sleep.

When the rooster crowed, all three cowboys jumped out of bed to go see what their new mounts would look like.

The first cowboy, a quiet fellow that was never contrary to man or animal, looked upon a nice bay horse. He stepped up in the saddle and the horse seemed to know what the cowboy wanted before he did. The first cowboy whistled a note of approval and rode off.

The second cowboy, a rowdy fellow with a quick tongue, looked at a young sorrel that was wearin’ his saddle. He stepped up in the stirrup and didn’t even get his butt in the seat before the sorrel exploded and sent him flyin’. Before he hit the ground, the horse kicked him and then stomped him once he landed.

The third cowboy, a constant complainer, looked at the small donkey in front of him. He was perplexed by how he would ever get anything done on such an animal, but saddled up anyways. Immediately the donkey began brayin’ loudly. This spooked the sorrel the second cowboy was still tryin’ to get on and the loud brayin’ sent four barn cats hissin’ and up into the hay.

What if your words were to become a livin’ being?

      Same to you Greg. I just want to sincerely thank you for being so good at leavin’ me a comment. It’s nice to know when someone actually reads this or listens.

      God bless you and yours this Christmas season and the rest of the years that follow.

  • Thanks for the really great message 🙂 While I didn’t drink coffee, I did work on some knitting while you were speaking via my computer 🙂 I thought it was an encouraging and convincting message all at the same time 🙂 🙂 I wrote down something you said at the end starting with “Complaining does nothing more than announce to the world that you are selfish, ungrateful, self-absorbed, with opinions you are unwilling to do anything about….” It’s really easy to complain to someone than to bring my concerns to God Himself 😉 🙂 Anyways, thanks for the awesome message 🙂 🙂 I saved it to my USB drive, so I can listen to it again later. Blessings from the ocean shores of California, Heather 🙂
