Sermon Illustrations

If we set ourselves up as the Judge of who is and is not righteous, we’ll get it wrong as often as we’ll get it right.

Through the years I’ve had numerous occasions when folks warned me to watch out for other people in a church. The amazing thing is that --- in almost every case --- the people I was warned about turned out to be Delightful and Dependable folks. In fact, more often than not, the ones who bad-mouthed them turned out to be the real troublemakers. Often the “weedy-est” folks are the ones who are quick to Judge someone else’s “weedy-ness.”
