One response to Unity Through Humility

    I remember well the first sermon that I delivered in Charleston, West Virginia. I studied for a month, prayed for a week and had everything arranged just right for my “debut.”

    I was given 30 minutes to deliver my message. I had, at least 45 minutes worth of material ready. I was flying high and sure that this would be a “Billy Graham” type sermon with great results.

    Fifteen minutes later, I was finished! I was 20 years old and learned a great lesson in humility that day.
