Two preachers who didn’t get along very well met on the street. One of them said, “I heard you speak the other night and recognized that sermon – you preached it 14 years ago.” Somewhat chagrined, the other shot back, “I heard you speak just 3 weeks ago, and I can’t remember a word you said!”

A lesson can be drawn from this story. Our lives should be like good sermons, conveying a message that leaves a lasting impression – one that motivates others to godly living. When we’ve finished our course, what will folks recall about us?”
