Sermon Illustrations

At the age of 3 years old, our family lived with my maternal grandparents while my father was in seminary. One day the kid living next-door to us came up to me and said, “Greg Fisher I am going to give you a bloody nose.” The next thing that happened—when he did, in fact, punch me in the nose--was that I learned five valuable life lessons in just one punch to the nose.

1. Friendship is a lot more complicated than it looks initially.

2. Blood tastes real salty when it runs into your mouth.

3. Bad things happen to good people.

4. When bad things happen to good people … the lament usually follows.

5. God puts people into our lives to care for us and to help sustain us in times to hardship.

Imagine that! My first sermon outline at the age of three!
