In his sermon on Aug 20 2017, "Things that Defile" Patrick talked about the power of words to defile. Joseph had the choice to defile or sanctify with the words he would speak to his brothers. Joseph chose to forgive rather than defile. Jesus said that words can defile, they express what is in the heart. Defiled words come from defiled hearts and defiled actions will follow. The sermon reminded us that words matter. The Old Testament lesson was Genesis 45:1-15. The New Testament lesson was Matthew 15:10-20.
