Fred Somebody,
Thomas Somebody,
Susan Somebody,
and Joe Nobody
were neighbors,
but they were not like you and me. Thet were odd people and most difficult to understand. The way they lived was a shame.

All four belonged to the same church, but you would not have enjoyed worshipping with them.

Everybody went fishing on Subday or stayed home to visit friends.

Anybody wanted to worship but was afraid SOMEBODY wouldn't speak to him. So guess who went to church-NOBODY.

Really, NOBODY was the only decent one of the four. NOBODY did the visitation. NOBODY worked on the church building.

Once they needed a Sunday School treacher.

EVERYBODY thought ANYBODY would do it, and ANYBODY thought SOMEBODY would do it. And you know who did it? That's exactly right........NOBODY

It happened that a fifth neighbor ( an unbeliever ) moved into the area. EVERYBODY thought SOMEBODY should try to win him for Christ. ANYBODY could have made an effort. You probably know who finally won him:NOBODY!

This little parable brings to focus again the fact that each of us is personally responsible for God's work.

If we leave it for somebody or everybody or anybody, nobody will do it.

Let's work till Jesus comes!!!!
