3-Week Series: Double Blessing

Sermon Illustrations

Now, I do not know how it is with you… when I get medicines at the pharmacy - I do not read ALL of the instructions on my medicine… or I just do not bother to read them at all. I figure – it is medicine – all I have to do is swallow it!

I did that once with a medicine my Doctor prescribed. I did not bother to read the instructions that came along with the antibiotic I was given and I ended up with a painful upset stomach that took me better than a week to get healed. When you buy a medicine for an illness, they have those little papers that come along with them to tell you ‘how’ to take your pills. Unbelievably, we are expected to read those silly things.

Moreover, if we do not… and something goes wrong… we can blame ONLY ourselves.
