Genius is one percent inspiration and ninety-nine percent perspiration. (Thomas Edison, 19th-20th century prolific inventor)

Probably most people would like to be thought of as a genius. Some put a lot of effort into looking for some special inspiration to get them going to create or to do something new and unusual. Edison’s experience, however, demonstrates that perseverance is key. He said it takes a thousand attempts to achieve even one success. So, let’s keep working at doing good.

As you know, we count as blessed those who have persevered (James 5:11).
