First I’d like to start with something a little interesting. I heard an interesting story about a little son whose dad was a minister.
And the dad was really flustered one day. He was trying to come up with a sermon topic, just pulling out his hair and just couldn’t get it. He was crossing things out, writing and scribbling things on his paper.
And so the son was watching the scene and all of a sudden he asked his dad: “Hey daddy, how do you come up with your sermon topics?” The dad was very flustered at the moment, he said: “Son, you know, God gives me them. God tells me what to say.”
And then the son looked at daddy and said: “Then daddy, why are you crossing out God’s ideas?” (Laughter)
