Pastor speaking behind a pulpit


Preaching Magazine Illustrations

It was Sunday evening and Harry Ironside had preached five times that day. He was weary, and on the way home his wife asked a question to which he responded with irritation. Immediately he felt conviction and apologized to his wife. Saying: “Forgive me, I am quite tired. Remember, I have preached five times today.”

To which his wife responded, “Yes, dear, I know. But remember, I have had to listen to you five times today!” (Moody Monthly)
