Man's Judgement VS. God's Judgement
Wife Going Deaf?
Matthew 7:3–5; Luke 6:37; John 7:24; Romans 2:3; James 4:12
Preaching Themes: Marriage, Pride
A man thinks his wife is losing her hearing. A doctor suggests that he try a simple at-home test: Stand behind her, ask her a question from different distances, and see when she can hear it. The man goes home, sees his wife in the kitchen facing the stove, and asks from the door, “What’s for dinner tonight?” No answer. Ten feet behind her, he repeats, “What’s for dinner tonight?” Still no answer. Finally, right behind her he says, “What’s for dinner tonight?” His wife turns around and says, “For the third time—chicken.”
Jesus taught us to look at our own shortcomings before we blame others.
