Preaching Must Be Pleasant for the Hearers


Nearly every day, I read a page out of George Whitfield’s journals. They make me feel like a lazy bum most of the time—he did so much, preaching more sermons than anyone in history, and did it all without electronic media or a car. He is amazing. He is also recorded as having amazing skill at keeping an audience’s attention. Therefore, this quote is appropriate (and funny) from him:

“TO PREACH MORE THAN HALF AN HOUR, A MAN SHOULD BE AN ANGEL HIMSELF OR HAVE ANGELS FOR HEARERS.”

– George Whitfield
