As I sit here in my office praying over this text that won't let me go--Matthew 5:43-48--I remember these words of William Willimon: "'The Trouble with you preachers is that you are always talking about something so far removed from my world, where I really live, as to be incomprehensible. Keep your sermons close to the real world,' he said to me as we shook hands at the church door. "I turned his criticism into a homiletical compliment. Where did he get the idea that a preacher ought to defer to 'my world'? Most good sermons have a quarrel with popular definitions of 'the real world.' I ought not simply to address the world where people currently reside. Rather, I ought to move their citizenship to a new world."
