Watching Our Words

Every preacher's nightmare is a slip of the tongue that overshadows anything else you might say in the rest of the sermon. This poor guy's preaching slip will haunt him for years. I did a similar thing in my first preaching church which was filled with older widows. And in a sermon on Sarai, I talked about Abram passing her off as his sister because she was so beautiful that the king of the country they were visiting would desire her and kill him. And I tried to comment on how odd I thought this was, "because we don't normally think of older women as attractive." And the more I tried to dig myself out of that hole, the worse it got.
