3-Week Series: Double Blessing

Sermon Illustrations

Halfway through the second grade, Mrs. Sergeant, who lived up to her name, sent a note home to the young boy’s parents. It was added onto his report card and therefore entered into his permanent record. It said, “Your son day dreams too much. He is always looking out the window and his mind wanders far from the task at hand.”

What a blow to his future—what a stain on this young boy’s academic career. What if he could never stop this dreaming? What would become of a boy who dreamed of something more—something magical—something so much greater than the task at hand?

Well, be sure our world is crowded with dreamers like this little boy. Some go on to accomplish great things. Others have their dreams eventually pounded out of them. Some have chapters of the Bible written about them and others, like that little second grader, become your pastor and encourage you to discover your dreams together.
