At our church, there’s been this enduring exchange of levity surrounding the Lamborghini it has yet to gift to me. So this Sunday, I’m going to vent my true feelings and get them all out on the table – or should I say pulpit. It’s long overdue that I come clean and tell the congregation how desperately I long for my own Lamborghini. How much? About as much as I desire to be hired as a gourmet Chef at some Lebanese restaurant. You see, I know virtually nothing about cooking and I hate garlic and grape leaves. I probably know less about cars and could care less which model I drive; just so it gets me where I need to go. I have zero interest in owning a Lamborghini – unless of course, it comes as a gift. 🙂
But let me be honest about some things I truly would like to have: about six more inches of stature, a property that manicures itself and the ability to play drums like our church drummer, Will. Now I’m being honest. I could throw in five or six other things, like a vacation to the Grand Canyon and a slice of Triple Chocolate Cake every night for dessert for the rest of my life.
So what exactly does this frivolous twaddle about a Lamborghini have to do with anything worthy of our valuable time preaching God’s Word? You’ll have to come this Sunday to hear my answer as we come to the last commandment of Moses’ Top Ten in our final sermon in this series I’ve entitled simply, “Don’t covet.”
