Featured Illustration items are well suited for introducing or illuminating a point in a sermon, speech, or devotional. Funny, moving, or perhaps even graphic, the point of them is the point you make with them.
A friend of mine was in the hospital awaiting the arrival of her first child. When I telephoned the hospital to see if the baby had arrived, the nurse said it had. I asked if it was a boy or girl and was told that it was against hospital policy to give this information over the phone.
“Fine,” I said. “I can understand that. But can you tell me what she didn’t have?”
“It wasn’t a boy,” came the reply.
Very funny, Scotty. Now beam down my clothes.”
Thought for the day
Romans 3:23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,
Our sins stand in awful contrast to the glory of God. They make us stand in need of his redemption.
