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  very worn and ragged. In his hand he carried a worn out old hat and  an equally worn out 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 accessories.

As the cowboy took a seat, the others moved away from him. No one  greeted, spoke to, or welcomed him. They were all appalled at 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." 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 again approached the man and  said, "I thought I asked you to speak to God before you came back to  our church."

"I did," replied the old cowboy.

"If you spoke to God, what did he tell you the proper attire should  be for worshiping in here?" 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."
