409 Tries

Scripture reading

I’m sure now I’ll see God’s goodness in the exuberant earth. Stay with God! Take heart. Don’t quit. I’ll say it again: Stay with God.
–Psalm 27:14

Thought of the Day

I read something interesting recently about the “all purpose cleaner” FORMULA 409. It seems that the two scientists who invented it in the late 1950’s didn’t perfect it on their first or second try. Nor the third or the forth either. Can you guess how many times it took them to perfect it and get it just right? You are so smart. It was on their 409th attempt that the formula was complete and ready for the public.
For those of you, who like to clean, you should be glad that those two guys stayed with it and didn’t quit. For those of you who want to see God’s goodness in the exuberant earth, I guess I will say to you the same thing the psalmist said a few years ago, “Stay with God! Take heart. Don’t quit.”


God, You are so good. I want to stay with You. Amen.
