10,000 Ways That Don't Work

Most people think of Thomas Edison as a man who achieved one success after another. The truth is, some of his experiments turned out to be dead ends; but he was not easily discouraged.

For example, he tried hundreds of times, without success, to develop a storage battery. When a friend sympathized with him over his failure, Edison exclaimed, “But I haven't failed. I've found 10 thousand ways that don't work!” Eventually, he found a way that did work.

This is a trying time in our world and if you are like me, when someone tells me to stay home, there is something within me that makes me want to go out even more. I often have the same struggle when it comes to sin in my life.

What the writer of Hebrews reminds us of is this fact, Jesus is better. In our times of struggle against sin, we need to remember what Jesus did on the cross for those sins of ours. When struggles in our lives come, instead of focusing on the struggle, focus on the cross.

Hebrews 12:3-4 NIV

Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart. 4 In your struggle against sin, you have not yet resisted to the point of shedding your blood.

I love you all,
