The cowboy in the church

 

One Sunday morning, an old cowboy entered a church just before services were

to begin. Although the old man and his clothes were spotlessly clean, he

wore jeans, a denim shirt and boots that were worn and ragged. In his hand

he carried a worn-out old hat and an equally worn, dog-eared Bible.

 

The church he entered was in a very upscale and exclusive part of the city.

It was the largest and most beautiful church the old cowboy had ever seen.

The people of the congregation were all dressed with expensive clothes and

fine jewelry. As the cowboy took a seat, the others moved away from him. No

one greeted, spoke to, or welcomed him. They were all appalled by his

appearance and did not attempt to hide it.

 

As the old cowboy was leaving the church, the preacher approached him and

asked the cowboy to do him a favor. "Before you come back in here again,

have a talk with God and ask him what he thinks would be appropriate attire

for worship in church." The old cowboy assured the preacher he would.

 

The next Sunday, he showed back up for the services wearing the same ragged

jeans, shirt, boots, and hat. Once again he was completely shunned and

ignored. The preacher approached the cowboy and said, "I thought I asked you

to speak to God before you came back to our church."

 

"I did," replied the old cowboy. "And what was his reply?" asked the

preacher.

 

"Well, sir, God told me that he didn't have a clue what I should wear. He

said he'd never been in this church."
