Firecrackers

The sermon is not like a Chinese firecracker to be fired off for the noise it makes. It is a hunter’s gun, and at every discharge he should look to see his game fall

—Henry Ward Beecher

A sermon should have a clear purpose, a target. Like the rifle, it should be aimed carefully at the target to hit the mark.
