My pastor is preaching a series of sermons from the book of Nehemiah. He used the Tater family anecdote below as his lead-in to the sermon today. Every church has this family.
Some people never seem motivated to participate, but are just content to watch while others do the work. They are called Speck Taters.
Some people never do anything to help, but are gifted at finding fault with the way others work. They are called Commen Taters.
Some people are very bossy and like to tell others what to do, but don't want to soil their own hands. They are called Dick Taters,
Some people are always looking to cause problems by asking others to agree with them. They are called Agie Taters.
There are those who say they will help, but somehow just never get around to actually doing anything. They are called Hezzie Taters.
Some people can put up a front and pretend to be someone they are not They are called Emma Taters.
Then there are those who love others and do what they say they will. They are always prepared to stop whatever they are doing and lend a helping hand. They bring real sunshine into the lives of others. They are called Sweet Taters.
By love serve one another. - Galatians 5:13
I cannot find an original author for the Tater family, but there are several versions available on the internet. SalleeB
