I’ve heard a lot of sermons in the past ten years or so that made me want to get up and walk out. They’re secular, psychological, self-help sermons. Friendly, but of no use. They didn’t make you straighten up. They didn’t give you anything hard. At some point and in some way, a sermon has to direct people toward the death of Christ and the campaign that God has waged over the centuries to get our attention.
The plans of the diligent lead surely to plenty, But those of everyone who is hasty, surely to poverty.
The New King James Version
