Teaching Moments

…you, then that teach others, will you not teach yourselves? Romans 2:12-24  Almost every sermon I’ve written, is out of my experience. I remember the first time I preached and realized that I was preaching to myself. I couldn’t help but wonder about all the times my parents “preached” to me out of their experiences and it was quite possible that they really weren’t just making stuff up as they went along. I always said there are things I would never do in the way my parents did with me. I now know that it didn’t matter that I wanted to do things differently. In the same way my parents taught me out of their experience I would have to teach out my own experiences. Now I see every day lived as an opportunity, teaching moments for us to encourage  our selves and one another simply by sharing experiences.
