Sermon Illustrations

We have all heard the expression, “It’s enough to make a preacher cuss”. There’s the story of a boy trying to sell a broken down lawnmower. The local pastor walked up and he was able to persuade him to buy it. The pastor pulled on the rope several times but the mower wouldn’t start. The boy told the preacher that he would have to kick the mower and say a few cuss words before it would crank. The preacher said, “Son it’s been years since I said a cuss word.” The boy said, “Just keep pulling and it will come back to you!”
