Sermon Illustrations

Swindoll states, “How much better to be calm than angry, because with a patient spirit there emerges a groundswell of wisdom. On this pilgrimage from earth to heaven, one of God’s great goals is the development of our inner character, which implies the replacement of a proud spirit with a patient spirit. As that transpires, wisdom has a platform upon which to work. Our haughty spirit pushes wisdom aside, and when it does, we play the fool” (Living on the Ragged Edge pg.198).
