Repeating Yourself as a Pastor

Have you ever considered where good Christian books come from?

Many of them are repurposed Sunday morning messages in book form.  Rick Warren is a genius for getting 30,000,000 people to buy a book filled with 40 recycled sermons!

Were you aware that this is a biblical concept?  Paul thought that too:

Philippians 3:1 (NIV)
Finally, my brothers, rejoice in the Lord! It is no trouble for me to write the same things to you again, and it is a safeguard for you.

Yesterday I recycled/repurposed a Mother’s Day message from 6 years ago.  Even better the second time!
