A Great Sermon


Here’s an old poem by Edgar Guest that's worth reflecting on, especially for all of us who teach and preach others ...

A Sermon

I’d rather see a sermon than hear one any day;

I’d rather one should walk with me than merely show the way.

The eye’s a better pupil, and more willing than the ear;

Fine counsel is confusing, but example is always clear.

So I’d rather get my lesson by observing what you do;

It is not enough to preach it, you must live the sermon, too.

For I may misunderstand you and the high advice you give,

But there’s no misunderstanding how you act and how you live.


This is a good one! A good reminder that it doesn't matter how much we tell people what we think, what really speaks is who we are :-)

So true. It matters who we are in Christ both publicly and privately.

I like that. Walking the talk in a way that others can see and experience.
