Being a Christian is like being a Pumpkin

A lady recently asked her co-worker what it was like to be a Christian?

The lady replied, “It’s like being a pumpkin: God picks you from the patch, brings you in, and washes all the dirt off you may have gotten from the other pumpkins. Then he cuts the top off and scoops out all the yucky stuff. He removes the seeds of doubt, hate, greed, etc., then He carves you a new smiling face and puts His light inside of you to shine for all the world to see.”

This message was passed on to me from another pumpkin that was picked from the patch. Share this with others including those who may still be in the pumpkin patch.

  • This is so true. When God chooses us and corns the dirt out of our lives, we can serve Him,
    And share his love and word with others, So they are taken out of that patch of dirt sinful lives.
    And learn of his love

  • I love the simplicity with which this powerful message is relayed. Even a child can read and be able to comprehend God’s changing power and compassion in forgiving the dirtiest of all creatures. I love Jesus may all that read this be blessed and encouraged to shine their light to the world.
