What’s the Meaning in YourMessage
Written By: Timothy A. Valentine
Too many of us try to give sermons to othersrather than be a sermon. We’re moreconcerned with perception than practice.The sermon I have tried to preach is onewhere you leave knowing that you areaccepted, respected and appreciated. Even if we disagree, this is my mission. One reasonis due to my own experiences of not beingaccepted, respected or appreciated. It’s alonely feeling that can leave you desperateand anxious. No longer should you allowyourself to feel this way.Now before I continue allow me to say that Ican only come at this through my ownexperiences. As a son of a preacher, great-grandson and great-nephew of preachers Ican only say that I’ve been blessed to havebeen born into such a tradition, although I’mnot seeking to be in the pulpit.Your sermon should be one that leaves aperson with so much self-respect,introspection and confidence that motivatesyou to go out and do the same for others.Your sermon should motivate you when youmotivate others. No matter what they believespiritually, politically, emotionally or socially,you can easily see them for who they arebeyond what they are and know that they toohave a sermon to deliver.What is the meaning of your message?Is it the example you give by the way youspeak to someone?Is it the way you avoid the opportunity toserve someone with the proxy of 
“It’s noneof my business”
, knowing they’re hurting?We all have something to give, somethingtake from the sermons of life. But too oftenwe’re too busy thinking about ourselves andwhat we need to do than listen to themeaning of the message.What’s the meaning of your message?
