FROM THE PULPIT: Never give up

Published: Monday, January 14, 2013 at 04:59 PM.

•Walt Disney was fired by a newspaper editor who said Disney didn’t have any good ideas. 

•Enrico Caruso, an Italian opera singer, was told by a voice coach, “You can’t sing. You have no voice at all.” 

What if all these people had believed their critics? They would have given up and we would not have the numerous inventions, music, writings and stores we enjoy today.

Don’t give up. 

Every day is a new opportunity to begin fresh. Every day is a gift given to you by God to have a new beginning. Hang on to the hope and assurance of his love and grace because he will see you through.

The Rev. Mark Broadhead is pastor at Laurel Hill Presbyterian Church and First Presbyterian Church of Crestview.
