My neighbor told me this Story after church this past Sunday – I think she said it was a true story.
It was Saturday night and the preacher still hadn’t been able to think of a sermon for the next morning. About 9:00pm, he finally said to his wife, “Dear, I think I have finally come up with the perfect sermon! I’m going to give a sermon on horseback riding!”
She said, “Don’t be silly! You can’t give a sermon about horseback riding!”
He replied, “Well, it’s going to have to do because I’ve preached on just about every other subject I can think of.”
The next morning as they were driving to church, she said, “I can’t believe that you are insisting on doing this! You know, if you are going to give that silly sermon on horseback riding, I’m just going to stay in the car during the service!”
He said, “Ok, then, suit yourself!” So, she stayed in the car!
Entering the church before the service, the preacher had a sudden inspiration and gave a hell-fire and brimstone sermon on SEX that just had the congregation in awe. As the congregration filed out of the church, some of the members saw his wife sitting in the car and approached the window.
One of them said, “WOW! You just missed the best sermon your husband has ever given!”
She said, “Yeah, right, what does he know about it! He talks big but he’s only tried it twice in his whole life! Once before we were married and once after – and he fell off both times!”
