Sermon Illustrations

A. Rudyard Kipling, The Jungle Book: Mowgli, the man cub, asks the animals what’s

the most feared thing in the jungle. He’s told that when two animals meet on a narrow

path that one must step aside and let the other pass. The animal that steps aside for no

one would then be the most feared.

Mowgli wants to know what kind of animal would that be? One tells him it’s an

elephant. Another tells him it’s a lion. Finally the wise old owl exclaims, “The most feared thing in the jungle is death. It steps aside for no one.”
