Sermon Illustrations

A preacher remembered when his daughter was two years old and he was watching her at the house. His wife was shopping and he was watching a basketball game, while he was supposed to be watching the little one. You know how that goes, as he was watching the game, all of a sudden he looked up and saw his daughter on the kitchen counter and she was slinking across acting like she was a lion. She was growling and she was way up there because the counter is kind of high. He said to his daughter, “Does your mother let you do that?” She said, “No, but you do.”
