Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to just try one more time. (Thomas Edison, prolific inventor)

Edison, we’re told, tried some experiments hundreds of times before he found a workable model of his idea. In the 21st-century we still profit from his work more than 100 years ago. Among his almost 1100 patents, he gave us the phonograph (does anybody today have one?), the incandescent light bulb, and the motion picture camera. Out of many failures came much success.

Let us not become tired of doing good. At the right time we will gather a crop if we don’t give up. (Galatians 6:9)
