DON’T BE AFRAID TO FAIL In my local church, we use a parish prayer which includes the line: ‘Help us to be brave enough to fail – but try again.’ Encouraging words indeed, and if we look back throughout the centuries, many men and women who have made the world a better place have taken those words to heart. For example, where would we be today without electricity? Yet at school, Thomas Edison was told he was “too stupid to learn anything.” He was sacked from his first two jobs; and made 1,000 unsuccessful attempts at inventing the light bulb. But in the end, he succeeded, and changed the course of world history. Car manufacturer Henry Ford revolutionised transport in the USA, but he had five businesses fail before he founded the successful Ford Motor Company. Winston Churchill was a Nobel Prize-winning, twice-elected Prime Minster, but he struggled at school, was defeated in early elections for public office, and did not become Prime Minister until he was 62. As the late Nelson Mandela wisely observed: “Do not judge me by my successes, judge me by how many times I fell down and got back up again.” So, let us commit ourselves to loving God with all our hearts, to putting our abilities at His disposal, and to never giving up. by Colin Hammacott.
