6-Week Series: Against All Odds

Sermon Illustrations


"Walk a little slower Daddy", said a child so small.

"I’m following in your footsteps and I don’t want to fall.

Sometimes your steps are very fast.

Sometimes they’re hard to see;

So walk a little slower, Daddy,

For you are leading me.

Someday when I’m all grown up,

You’re what I want to be.

Then I will have a little child

Who’ll want to follow me.

And I would want to lead just right,

And know that I was true;

So, walk a little slower, Daddy,

For I must follow you."
