Sermon Illustrations

We had a friend one time, a lovely and hospitable woman, who would often have us over for dinner. And she was a great cook. But I couldn’t enjoy her desserts, especially her cakes. She always made them without salt. I don’t exactly know what salt does in a cake recipe, but I know that, when it’s not there, the cake is dry and tasteless.

Who wants dry and tasteless religion? Not me. And not you either, I’ll guess. But leave love out of the recipe, and that’s what you’ve got. Something that looks good, maybe, but it tastes awful. So, no matter how you and I express our spirituality, let’s make sure we do so with love.
