A man had not seen a pastor friend in several years, and decided to drop in to hear one of his sermons. Afterwards, he told his friend how impressed he was with his new style.

“I remember,” he said, “when you used to preach with such fire. Now you’re more subdued. What happened?”

“Oh,” his friend replied, “I used to think I needed thunder to impress everyone, but now I know it’s the lightning.”
