Sermon Illustrations

When my eldest brother Peter was caught in a riot at the university, he realized that at his age, he couldn’t confront the riot police as they engaged the students in the melee. He therefore thought very fast in order to save his skin. He took an African basket and bought some groceries - cabbages, carrots, onions etc and he walked majestically past the riot policemen. They did not recognize him as a student and so they never bothered to ask him anything.
