Sermon Illustrations

A Sunday school superintendent read this text. "Who can tell me what a yoke is?" he asked. "Something they put on the necks of animals," answered a ten-year-old girl. "Then," asked the leader, "what is God’s yoke?" There was silence until a four-year-old raised his hand and said, "God, putting His arms around our neck." The Oriental shepherd was always ahead of his sheep. He was down in front. Any attack upon the sheep had to take him into account. Now our God is down in front.
