Sermon Illustrations: Selflessness

After all Paul had been through, his overriding concern was for the churches. 2 Cor 11:22-28


Francesco de Pietro Bernadone was the fun-loving son of a wealthy merchant in Assisi. One day, as he was riding his horse, he encountered a dying leper. He was repulsed by the leper's open sores, but suddenly he saw a picture of himself as Jesus saw him. He jumped off his horse, put all his money into the leper's hand, and gently kissed the leper's hand. It was a profound spiritual experience as he died to self and set a foundation in his life to become Francis of Assisi.
