Never Quit

“We do not determine a man’s greatness by his talent or worth, as the world does, but rather what it takes to discourage him.”  –Jerry Falwell

Abraham Lincoln failed, often.  He botched a business in 1831. He lost bids for State Legislature and Congress.  He eventually won, but was defeated in his reelection bids.  Both his mother and wife died early in his life.  He ran for Vice President and got fewer than 100 votes.  Finally he ran and won the Presidency in 1860.  He had ups and more downs.  He never quit.    

May you be strengthened with all power, according to [God’s] glorious might, for all endurance and patience with joy… (Colossians 1:11, ESV).
