Keep Trying

For us there is only the trying. The rest is none of our business. (T. S. Eliot, 20th century essayist)

How do you respond when you try to do something, and it doesn’t work? Do you give up, thinking it’s no use to keep trying? Singer-songwriter Jared Leto says, “Try and fail, but never fail to try.” Or, as Winston Churchill famously said, “Never give up!” While we can’t always control the results, we must keep on working at it. The value for us may just be in the trying.

Work hard and become a leader. . . Good planning and hard work lead to prosperity (Proverbs 21:5; 12:24).
