Sermon Illustrations


A high school basketball player’s mom passed away on the day of a game. He made it to the game and his coach invited him to sit on the bench. But he wanted to play.

Since he arrived late, putting him in the game was a technical foul and the other team would shoot two free throws. Knowing the situation, the other team refused to shoot the free throws. But the officials persisted.

The coach asked for a volunteer to shoot the shots and the captain raised his hands. His first shot went about two feet, his second went about one foot.

The other team showed mercy to this player by sharing his pain with acts of kindness.
