Sermon Illustrations - Tag: Matthew 15:11
Posted by Douglas on Sep 20, 2008

I realize it has been a while since I've posted anything new here. Life has been very busy and hectic the last little while, and may become even more so for awhile. More on that another time!

For now, I do have another illustration of a Bible principle. The principle comes from Matthew 15:11, in which Jesus talks about what defiles a man.

For a change of pace, I've posted this one over on my creative writing website: Fifteen Minutes of Fiction. It can be found here: A Clogged Drain.
