The foolishness of preaching

You never know just how your ministry will touch somebody's life.

I was talking with the woman who cuts my hair, for instance, and we were reminiscing about someone we both knew -- a long-time member of my church, now dead.

"She always loved your sermons," the woman told me.

"She did?"

"Yes. She said she always looked forward to the times you preached."

"And why was that?"

"She told me that, anytime you preached, she'd be home in time to watch basketball on TV!"

No, we never know just how our ministry will touch another person's life . . .

And perhaps it's just as well.
