It was Sunday evening, and Harry Ironside had preached five times that day. He was weary, and on the way home his wife asked a question to which he responded with irritation. Immediately, he felt conviction and apologized to his wife.

Saying: “Forgive me, I am quiet tired. Remember, I have preached five times today.”

His wife responded, “Yes, Dear, I know; but remember, I have had to listen to you five times today!” (Moody Monthly)
