A farmer’s clock ran amuck one morning and struck seventeen. The man of the house jumped up and ran all over the place, saying, “Get up, it’s later than it ever has been before!” It is later than it ever has been by God’s eternal timepiece. It is later than you think.
When I started out preaching, it made me nervous when a “big preacher” showed up in the congregation. I have learned since that a really big preacher is the easiest of all men to preach to. If he just thinks he is a big preacher, he needs preaching to!
