TOPIC: NEVER, NEVER QUIT!
TEXT: Proverbs 16:3 “Commit your works to the LORD, And your thoughts will be established…”
The moment you start believing you’re successful enough to rest on your laurels, you’re in trouble. You’ve put a lid on your growth!
Solomon wrote, ‘Do you know a hard-working man? He shall be successful and stand before kings!’ (Prov. 22:29). Success is always a possibility, but never a guarantee. It belongs to the man or woman who’s willing to show up early, stay late, go the extra mile, and keep asking, ‘Is there a better way?’ A young man once asked successful CEO, ‘How can I make a name for myself and be successful?’. He replied, ‘Decide what you want, then stick with it. Never deviate from your course no matter how long it takes or how hard the road, until you’ve accomplished your purpose.’
Successful people have one thing in common: they refuse to quit! No matter how many times they fall, they get back up, dust themselves off, learn from it, and start over. ‘Ninety-nine per cent of those who fail are not actually defeated, they simply quit.’ The Bible says, ‘To win…you must deny yourselves… things that…keep you from doing your best’. The only people who never fail are those who never try. So keep going, and don’t even think about quitting!
