Posts Tagged ‘Let the saw do the work’

Clyde D. Bryan (February ’04 – Dec ’76), Dad, said

“Let the saw do the work” speaking of a handsaw. (I do not recall him owning a circular saw and I didn’t, till nearly a decade after his death.) He was referring to a sharp saw and meant pull/push it, allowing it to “eat” its way through the board; do not bear down too hard. As I was sawing this AM I remembered Dad’s admonition. Does this apply also to ministers? Do not bear down too hard?

Have a well prepared sermon (sharp); let God use it and His Sharp Word to do His work. He will bring that soul to Him in HIS time.
