3-Week Series: Double Blessing

Sermon Illustrations

A woman was one day walking along a riverbank with her little boy. Suddenly, the child slipped into the river. The mother screamed in terror. She couldn’t swim, and was in the late stages of another pregnancy. Somebody finally heard her screaming and rushed down and into the river. The rescue became a recovery – the child had drowned within a few feet of his mother. The real out-and-out tragedy was, when they stepped into those murky waters to retrieve that now dead child, they found that the water was only waist deep! That mother could have easily saved her child but didn’t because of fear and a lack of knowledge.
