Sermon Illustrations

One of my favorite preachers is Dave Stone from the Southeast Christian Church in Louisville, Kentucky. He’s the preacher in a church that has 17,000 people. Dave has written books and is a popular motivational speaker. He was chosen as an influential leader in his community. But Steve Carr, a friend of mine told me that a few years ago at the North American Christian Convention in Kansas City that he was leaving the convention and saw Dave Stone, mega church preacher sitting on a park bench talking with a homeless man. Dave has not become too much of a famous preacher to stop and give his time to one man who needed a friend.
