You’ll Shoot Your Eye Out!

My friend Drexel Rayford got a whole sermon out of this YouTube clip from that classic film, “A Christmas Story.”  The sermon was about how anxiety can kill the joy of Christmas.  I haven’t heard it yet, but the last scene in this clip—where the sole of Santa’s black boot comes slowly toward Ralphie’s hopeful face—is an excellent illustration of joy-killing anxiety.  What do you think?  Is there a sermon in there?

  1. Yes there is a sermon in this story. Whenever you have a victory or experience something spiritually good, there is usually a challenge coming to that achievement. It is trying to take away that joy that came to you through your recent Christian experience. The title of the sermon ” The Devil Steals your Joy.”
