Sermon Illustrations

Charles Francis Adams, the nineteenth century political figure and diplomat, kept a diary. One day he entered: "Went fishing with my son today—a day wasted."

His son, Brook Adams, also kept a diary, which is still in existence. On that same day Brook Adams made this entry: "Went fishing with my father—the most wonderful day of my life!"
