Sermon Illustrations


There are three kinds of people -- rowboat people, sailboat people, and steamboat people. Rowboat people need to be pushed or shoved along. Sailboat people move when a favorable wind is blowing. Steamboat people move continuously, through calm or storm. They are masters of themselves, their surroundings, and their fate.

In your spiritual life, do you always have to be pushed along or only move with the "next best" fad that comes along? Or is your course set, and nothing will stop you from moving forward?

(From a sermon by Stephen Sheane, "A New Year, A New You")
