6-Week Series: Against All Odds

Sermon Illustrations



My son came home from school one day, With a smirk upon his face.

He decided he was smart enough, To put me in my place.

’Guess what I learned in Civics Two, that’s taught by Mr. Wright?

It’s all about the laws today, The ’Children’s Bill of Rights.’

It says I need not clean my room, Don’t have to cut my hair

No one can tell me what to think, Or speak, or what to wear.

I have freedom from religion, And regardless what you say,

I’ve called and checked with C.S.D., Who said they didn’t care

If I bought you K-Mart shoes Instead of those Nike Airs.

I’ve canceled that appointment To take you driver’s test.

The C.S.D. is unconcerned, So I’ll decide what’s best. ’

I said ’No time to stop and eat, Or pick up stuff to munch.
