Sermon Illustrations


A missionary was assigned to some remote islands in the Pacific. After three months, he sent a fax to mission headquarters: "I'm being plagued by rats. What shall I do?"

Soon a crate arrived, filled with rat traps.

However, hardly a month later the missionary sent a second fax to headquarters: "The rats won't take the bait. What shall I do?"

Not long after, a second crate arrived. This crate was filled with rat poison.

However, hardly another month passed when the missionary found it necessary to send a third fax to headquarters: "The rats won't touch the poison. Do you have any other suggestion?"

Soon he received another fax from mission headquarters: "We suggest you get used to the RATS!"
