Sermon Illustrations

Illustration: One Sunday morning, a Pastor was sharing a “Children’s sermon” with the children of the church. He was talking to them about the importance of loving one another and getting along with one another. He used the passage of scripture that I just read to explain to the children that God wants us all to be one. After he told them this, a three-year-old girl who always listened very carefully to the Pastor’s children’s sermon, and usually had something to add to it, raised her hand and said, “BUT I DON’T WANT TO BE ONE. I WANT TO BE FOUR!”
