Sermon Example in Real Life

Sermon Example in Real Life

A man who heard my sermon on Sunday morning sent this along this week….
“I am listening to the radio as I work.  A woman has just called in for advice.
Years ago she bought her husband a motorcycle as a gift.  He learned to ride and really enjoyed it.  Soon, he started buying a lot of things for his motorcycle.  Then, he started hanging out with other motorcycle enthusiasts.  He is now the head of a “gang” that rides around (probably just wasting time and gasoline).  Now, he wants to change their retirement plans to include a new motorcycle and time to ride around a lot.  This is something she doesn’t want.
He has now initiated divorce proceedings because she doesn’t want to cooperate.
In light of your illustration this Sunday about horses, I thought it was a tragic, real-life story that reinforces your message.
Sadly, that kind of thing really does happen.”
