Sermon Illustrations

A Russian novelist has written a story in which he represents his hero as a man who witnessed the trial and crucifixion of Jesus. However, he had a toothache, and all that he could recall of that memorable week was his toothache. There are many who belong to this group. They cannot become interested in Christian ministries because of their little selves. They are not concerned with those outside of Christ because of some trial they are passing through in their lives. It so often happens that so many forget the great needs of the world because of some little toothache.
