Responsibility to God

At one time, Daniel Webster was considered the greatest of all living Americans. He was outstanding as a statesman, lawyer, orator, and leader of men. Twenty-five national leaders attended a select banquet in his honor. One man at the banquet asked Mr. Webster, “Sir, what is the greatest thought that ever entered your mind?” Without hesitation, Webster replied, “The greatest thought that ever entered my mind was the thought of my responsibility to God.” As he spoke, he wept, excused himself from the banquet, and went outside to get control of his emotions. When he returned he talked for thirty minutes about man’s responsibility to God. (Carl G. Johnson. From a sermon by Gerald Flury, Our Calling, 10/25/2010)
