Visiting a Friend

A while back, I took a 200-mile train trip to visit a farmer in southern Illinois. He taught me in Sunday School back when I was growing up. His wife was dying, and I wanted to say, “You two really helped me a lot. Bless you both!”

I sense that good Sunday School teachers aren’t thanked as much as they should be. But, as the planting of this faithful farmer paid off in my life, I believe the work of many current Sunday School teachers will eventually bring a good harvest in the lives of others as well.

I’m glad I took the time and spent the money for that trip. These people are both with the Lord now. But I got a chance to say, “Bless you in Jesus’ name” before the opportunity was forever gone.

And, so can you thank those who have impacted your life for the Kingdom. Be sure to do so before the opportunity is lost.


I am grateful that I continue to hear how positively readers are responding to my latest book entitled The Sermon Sucking Black Hole—Why You Can’t Remember on Monday What Your Minister Preached on Sunday. This book is available at by clicking here.

In this book, I offer some solid tips to the people sitting in the congregation to help them remember what their pastor has said from the pulpit.
