Make Sure The Truth Cuts And Not You

We preachers have to come to terms with a few important points.

First of all, everybody ain’t gonna like what you throwing down…

In fact, if everybody loves all your sermons and messages, you probably are doing something wrong…

Somebody aught to get upset at least every once in a while. If everybody is comfortable..then guess what, something is wrong…

But that is not to say we should go out of our way to mess over folks.

You ever seen these preachers? They take joy in the number of “toes they step on.”

“I let them have it today…”

What?

No…you just teach the truth…

Somebody said once the truth cuts when you preach it…

But make sure it is the truth doing the cutting…

And not you…

Somebody has been called to teach some hard truth this week…

While Preaching, Make Sure it is The Truth Cutting, and Not You. Click To Tweet

I encourage you to do it…

Don’t back off from your responsibilities…

But….remember…

Make sure it is the truth that does the cutting and not you…

You just go head on and preach the truth…

Till Next Time,

Brother Sherman
