Sermon Illustrations

And the affects of mess is that it can distract us from what is good

Some time ago I visited a garden full of beautiful flowers

But it was not a pleasant place to be

You see that garden was full of fertilizer

Cow manure, blood and bone and it stunkā€¦

The smell distracted me from the beauty of the garden

And the mess in our lives has the same affect on us

The mess in our lives distract us from what is important

Think about it,

when you have a problem in your life

that problem can consume your time and energies

It keeps you away from what is good and helpful
