Small but Powerful!
I knew there would be photo requests after this morning’s sermon, so here are Willie and Bear, our 6 month old puppies who supplied one of the sermon illustrations. I’m sure there will be more to come!
Jeremy Pierce told me he was disappointed that I did not include the description of Willie that was first uttered by my wonderful daughter-in-law. Since Willie is constantly licking people she said, “Willie can’t handle his ‘licker'”. available domains Sorry Jeremy for the oversight. You would think in a sermon on the tongue that I could have found some use for that expression.
Thinking about how destructive our words can be is a sobering thought. My hope is that we can encourage one another to use language that builds the kingdom of God instead of setting loose the fire of hell.
On another note, Dan Miller’s illustration of the candy bar was perfect! For those who missed it here is the brief recap of Dan’s words before we took up our contribution. Dan gives his child a candy bar and asks if he can have some of it back. The child grudgingly pulls the smallest piece from the corner and gives it to him. May we all grow in our love for God and may it find expression in our financial generosity.
