A Few Need to Die


Warren Wiersbe, Be Strong. (p. 30)


It is unfortunate but true that sometimes the only way a ministry can move forward is by conducting a few funerals. A pastor friend of mine pleaded with his church board to build a new educational [building] to house an exploding Sunday School. One of the long time members of the board, a prominent businessman in the city, said to him, “You’ll do this over my dead body.” And they did! A few days later that officer had a heart attack and died; and the church moved ahead and built the much needed educational [building].
