In the night recently I heard this:
‘A sermon that is overdone or underdone is like a steak that is overdone or underdone; they can be consumed but they are not a good as they could be.’
If we are at a restaurant and the steak is overdone or underdone we can send it back for a re-do. If we are at home we perhaps can make some changes and if at church we are just expected to eat it and be quiet.
I think that applies in many areas: the way we dress, the amount of cologne or perfume we wear, blogs, texting, books, phone conversations, eating, sleeping, etc. The point is to try paying close attention to Getting it Just Right.
“So pay attention to how you hear. To those who listen to my teaching, more understanding will be given. But for those who are not listening, even what they think they understand will be taken away from them.” Jesus
