I love Thanksgiving when we pray,
And July 4th and Labor Day
With picnics, ants, and hungry flies,
And barbecue and hot French fries,
With Cokes and chips and apple pies
Beneath some hazy, lazy skies.
Preached in 1989
“Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. (Ecclesiastes 12:13)
“So likewise ye, when ye shall have done all those things which are commanded you, say, We are unprofitable servants: we have done that which was our duty to do.” (Luke 17:10)

“Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do.” (Luke 23:34a)
“… Woman, behold thy son! …Behold thy mother!” (John 19:26, 27a)
“And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt thou be with me in paradise.” (Luke 23:43)
I read biographies a great deal. Especially in the early, formative days of my ministry, so very often did I read biographies. I have read about the lives of most great men. One of my favorite characters in all of history is General William Booth. General Booth was the founder of the great Salvation Army, when it was more salvation than it was army. He led in spreading the Gospel over much of the world, as he organized street meetings and evangelistic services.
Lord, help me to live from day to day
In such a self forgetful way
That even when I kneel to pray
My prayer shall be for others.
Help me in all the work I do
To ever be sincere and true
And know that all I’ll do for you
Must needs be done for others.
Let self be crucified and slain
And buried deep – and all in vain
May efforts be to rise again
Unless to live for others.
And when my work on Earth is done
And my new work in Heaven begun
May I forget the crown I’ve won
While thinking still of others.
Others, Lord, others
Let this my motto be.
Help me to live for others,
That I may live like Thee.
I was at Pastor’s School the year this sermon was preached. We had a great time in the house of the Lord that night.
