Two weeks ago I concluded a sermon series on the Ten Commandments entitled “How To Be Perfect.” You can find the whole series here.

I thoroughly enjoyed preaching the whole series, but the first 9 minutes of the sermon on honoring your father and mother was simultaneously the hardest and the most enjoyable moment. My mom was there that day. And so I took the opportunity to say some things to her publicly. In the twenty years I’ve been preaching, this was the most emotional I’ve ever been.
