From Pastor Mike's Good Morning message in the bulletin:

Many of us have had surgery so we can relate to this story. Like most older post-surgery patients, the kind-hearted farmer was warned that he had to do his breathing exercises and tests to avoid pneumonia. He took the nurse's advice nicely, thanked her for it--and then proceeded to ignore it. After all, he had been farming all his life and done it HIS way. No one told him what to do and even if they tried, HE was always the final authority. That was the state of mind behind his warm, friendly exterior. He came through the surgery all right, didn’t he? So why was some silly huffing and puffing needed now? But even as his lungs began to fill up with fluid, he remained unconcerned. His family begged him to reconsider. But he refused, and as the nurse curtly said, "it led to his demise. Time had run out.

For many, God continues to our call to our hearts and invite us into relationship with Him, but we continue to say no out of pride. I plead with you to obey before it’s too late.
