One time a new pastor came to a church, and he preached a sermon that the people just loved. It was perfect in that it discussed just the right things. The next week he preached the same sermon, and while the congregation enjoyed it, they were a little confused that he gave the same sermon twice.
The following week he preached the same sermon yet again. This time the people moved from confusion to concern about why this guy kept repeating himself week after week. Guess what happened the next week? That’s right – he preached the same sermon. This time the people started getting a bit miffed.
After the service, the leaders came up to him and told him they would like him to preach about something different next week. He said, “When you start living THIS sermon, I’ll preach about something else.”
