We Can Learn a Lot From Potatoes

Some people in the church are very bossy and like to tell everyone what to do, but of course they do not wish to soil their hands. You might call that type "Dick Tater."

Some people never seem to be motivated to participate. They are content to watch while others do. They are "Speck Taters."

Some people never do anything to help, but they are gifted at finding fault with the way others do things. They are called "Comment Taters."

Some people are always looking for ways to cause problems. They look or others to agree with them. You call them "Aggie Taters."

Then there are those who always say they will, but somehow never get around to doing anything. They are "Hezzie Taters."

Some people put on a front and act like they are someone they are not. They are "Emma Taters."

Still, there are those who live what they talk. They are always prepared to stop what they are doing to lend a hand. They bring real sunshine into others' lives. You might call them "Sweet Taters."

Well, that brings us to the Tater Tots in the nursery. They will probably look at the other members of the church family and decide that they want to be like one of them. They might become a Dick Tater, a Sweet Tater, a Speck Tater, or an Emma Tater. Let's hope that they make the right choice.

What do you think? don't you agree that it is time for us to "sweeten" up and be the Tater that God has called us to be?

Where's the video that comes with this lesson? Oh yeah, I don't think we have the ability to turn a slide show into a dvd...

When my grandfather dug his taters, he put them in the root cellar until Grandmother needed them. Maybe we could have an ecclesiastical root cellar for some of our taters. They would all be needed at some time.
