The Main Characteristic of a Preacher

From George Herbert's 'The Country Parson, his Character and Rule of Holy Life"

"His main characteristic is not that he is witty, learned or eloquent, but holy, and so earnest is he in his desire to communicate, that he even interrupts his own sermon with many apostrophes to God as, 'Oh Lord, bless my people, and teach them this point.'"
