Sermon Illustrations


Several years ago, I was part of a great church in Omaha, Nebraska that ran a Christian school. When the parents of the students were surveyed and asked "What is your main role as a parent to your child?" the number one response was "To make my child happpy."

The pastor shared one Sunday morning how disturbing that was. To be honest, at the time I didn't see why that was so alarming. Only after some thought did I realize that if those were the lenses those parents looked through, it would shape their decisions in raising their children and the results would likely be ego-centric kids who grow into "me first" adults.
