“Do as I have done” Jn 13,15


A cross-country bus made a scheduled stop at a depot which was located near fourdifferent restaurants. The driver announced, “Folks, we ‘Il be here for 30 minutes. The bus line has a strict policy never to recommend an eating place by name, so I am not permitted to tell you where to go. However, if anyone wants me while we are here, I’ll be at Tony’s diner directly across the street.”  Most of the passengers joined him there for a meal.

There is a very apt Latin saying; “verba movent; exempla trahunt.” ‘Words move, but examples pull.’ Example is the best preaching; it is irresistible.
