Ed, our oldest son, now a pastor in Dallas, was born while Jo Beth and I served in a small North Carolina textile community. A midwife stayed with us. She was a godly woman, so one Thursday, desperate for a preaching topic, I asked her, “What’s the best sermon you ever heard?” “It was on ‘heart trouble,’” she replied. “What was the text?” I asked. “John 14!” she answered. We may be focused on physical heart trouble, but God’s concern is that the spiritual heart not be troubled. If it is well, our whole being will be untroubled.
