Illustration: Song Above the Noise

Sermon Illustration

A man said: While walking along a busy street one day, I heard someone singing. His sweet voice was distinguishable even above the noise of the traffic. When I located him, I noticed that he had no legs and was pushing himself through the crowd in a wheelchair.

Catching up with him, I said, “I want you to know how singing from a person in your condition gives everyone else a lift.” He answered with a grateful smile, “When I stopped thinking about what I had lost and began concentrating on all I had left, I found much for which I could rejoice and be happy.”

(From Steve Shepherd’s Sermon called “In This You Greatly Rejoice” 1/19/2009)
