Sermon Illustrations

"If I have expectations about certain persons, those people can let me down. They will disappoint me to the degree that they fall short of my expectations. But if I have no expectations about someone, anything given is a blessing and not something owed. We set ourselves up for offense when we require certain behaviours from those with whom we have relationships. The more we expect, the greatest the potential for offense."
