Overtime


Had an unexpected conversation this morning with Paul, a 96-year old gentleman from our church who is preaching this Sunday. He has had an incredible journey with Christ over the last 70+ years, and is struggling with how to fit it all into one 30 minute sermon. As we chatted he shared that in the past he would get upset (with many others) at the pastor here who would go overtime with his sermons. God spoke to Paul, sharing that:

“You don’t get upset when the football and basketball games you watch go overtime, so why do you get upset when the preacher does?”

Great thought i just had to share.
