Sermon Illustrations

Our world has plenty of knowledge and education, but not much wisdom.

Wisdom can often be learned from the fairly uneducated. Take children for instance.

Patrick, age 10 “Never trust a dog to watch your food.”

Michael, age 14 “When your dad is mad and asks you, ‘Do I look stupid?’ don’t answer him.” Michael also said, “Never tell your mom her diet’s not working.”

• Randy, 9 years “Stay away from prunes.”

• Lauren, age 9 “Felt markers are not good to use as lipstick.”

Joel, 10 years old “Don’t pick on your sister when she’s holding a baseball bat.” and

• Eileen, age 8 says, “Never try to baptize a cat.”
