"This morning's sermon was so challenging, Pastor. Thank you."
And, you think you really meant what you said to him.
But, if you were the one preaching, you would have said the exact same things about the exact same things.
In fact, he didn't say anything new, either. He said the same things about the same things that he's said for years.
The message didn't confuse you in any way or make you think about anything new.
You just ended up feeling more self-righteous than ever and spent the entire sermon thinking about those other people who it really applied to.
So, how exactly were you challenged?
