3-Week Series: Double Blessing

Sermon Illustrations

His One Mistake - He brushed his teeth twice a day. The doctor examined him twice a year. He wore rubbers when it rained. He slept with the windows opened. He stuck to a diet with plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables. He golfed. He got at least 8 hours of sleep every night. He never smoked, drank, or lost his temper. He exercised every day. He was all set to live to be 100.

The funeral will be Wednesday. He was only 63. He is survived by 18 specialists, 4 health institutions, 6 gymnasiums, and numerous manufacturers of health foods and drugs. He remembered everything, but he forgot God! He lived as though this world was all there

is and is now with those who say, “The harvest is past, the summer has ended, and we are not saved” (Jer. 8:20).

It¹s a dangerous thing to forget that spiritual part of us. It’s all we have left when we die.
