Sermon Illustrations

Grieving Person: It is so depressing being out of work so long, sometimes I wonder if life is worth living. Not that I’m planning on committing suicide or anything, but this really gets me down.

Right Response: I don’t blame you for feeling the way you do. It is bad, and I would probably have some of those same thoughts as well. Ill pray for you about this. Tell me some more.

Dumb Response: What are you so down about. Don’t you realize it could be much worse. Take my friend Tommy. He got laid off and now he has lung cancer.

Dumber: The Bible tells us to rejoice in the Lord. Set your eyes on Him and don’t fret about being out of work.

Dumbest: You are not trusting God and need to confess that to Him now. He must have brought these troubles to you to punish you.
