Sermon Illustrations

Soren Kierkegard, the 19th century Danish religious philosopher, told a story about a town where only ducks lived.

Every Sunday the ducks would waddle out of their houses and waddle down Main Street to their church. They waddled into the sanctuary and sat in their proper pews.

The duck choir waddled in and took its place, and then the duck minister came forward and opened the duck Bible.

He read to them…

Ducks! God has given you wings! With wings you can fly! With wings you can mount up and soar like eagles. No walls can confine you! No fence can hold you! You have wings. God has given you wings and you can fly like birds.”

All the ducks shouted “AMEN!” and they all waddled home.
