One-second sermons

I’m not the originator of these sermons. I’d love to give credit where credit is due, but I have no idea who wrote these. I found them while cleaning up and felt they were definitely worth sharing. As you read them, you must picture a black baptist deacon making the appropriate commentary after each in that special sing-song way.

  • Forbidden fruit creates many jams.
  • If you can’t see the bright side, polish the dull side
  • The best way to have the last word is to apologize
  • When you’re green with envy, you’re ripe for trouble
  • Kind words make good echoes.
  • We stand tallest when we stoop to help others
  • The best things in life aren’t things.
  • Setbacks pave the way for comebacks.
  • No God, no peace. Know God, know peace.
  • Life is a measure to be filled, not a cup to be drained.
  • The tongue weighs practically nothing, but few can hold it.
  • Life is short, pray hard.

UPDATE: I did some digging and found a source. Still don’t know if this is the original source. Compiled for Family Circle  by Mary Kathenne and David Compton.
