Sermon Illustrations

One man related that after the death of his oldest child, he was standing in an airport waiting for his flight. He noticed a little blonde girl, ten years old or so, and she was looking at some dolls in one of the mall areas. She had an elderly man with her and she said, “Granddaddy, loan me the money to buy this doll and I’ll pay you back out of my allowance when I get home.” He thought to himself, how many times have I heard similar appeals. If we do not respond to the privilege to give, there may come a time when our hearts will break at the loss of opportunity.
