The Monday Morning Pastor’s “Hangover”

Pastor, as you reflect on yesterday’s sermon and ministry, don’t beat yourself up because you didn’t say what you wanted, or because you said something you shouldn’t have said (or in the wrong tone), or because your sermon didn’t do the text and its subject justice. God can take the five loaves and two fishes of your sermon and multiply it in ways you can never imagine. You aren’t the only one who feels poorly about your sermon. I feel that way too. Listen to the words of one of the greatest expositors of the 20th century:

“I can say quite honestly that I would not cross the road to listen to myself preaching.”

D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones, Preaching and Preachers, p. 4
