Motivational quote: "Failures, repeated failures, are finger posts on the road to achievement. The only time you don't fail is the last time you try something, and it works. One fails forward toward success." -Charles F. Kettering

Thought #1: As long as you keep working forward---giving up is a failure. Be sure to learn from them.

Thought #2: Didn't this guy invent Freon? Does that count as success or failure? (Actually, he invented a lot of other stuff, so it's not like Freon was his claim to fame!)

Proverbs 17:7(NLT) ->But you'll see it!

Proverbs 17:8(NLT) ->Don't trust sudden success. It may be unearned. By extension, be wary of 'overnight success' in others---a little prudence goes a long way.

Proverbs 17:27(NLT) ->So why do you preach so long? [this verse should be a required memorize for sermon students]

Isaiah 45:7 ->Darkness is not simply God's absence, but is His creation as well.

Isaiah 45:10 ->Woe to those who criticize parents for having children?

1 Samuel 13:19 ->Disarm the people you wish to enslave. [this is as close as this blog will get to politics: the author of the Second Amendment was well aware of this passage. You should be too]

Revelation 4:8 ->There is no stopping the praise of God.

1 Timothy 4:11 ->Don't provide these things as options. Prescribe the truth as it is in Scripture. Insist on it, require it!!

Prayer: Lord God, let us not treat your word as optional, but instead realize the mandates of the Christian life!

Moving toward the Horizon,
Doug
