Sunday Blessings - Come Together

Every  Sunday  evening  we  have  our  church  outdoor  meeting.
It  is   amazing  to  see  people  coming  in   the  oppressive and  humid  heat.
People are   desirous  to hear  the  Gospel  message  and take 
part  in  worshipping  the King of  Glory.
Nowadays  because of   the  rains  we   are  having 
indoor  meetings  which  are  well  attended  too.
Yesterday ,  August  1st 
we  had  our  first  mid-week  Bible  study.
I  was only   expecting  10 or  12  people  to   show  up,  but 
more  than  20   came,  some  from 
far off  places , taking   inconvenient  public transport,
travelling  on  rough, rain  damaged  roads and  braving
traffic  jams.
Shows  how  much  they  covet  fellowship
and  teaching  of  the Word. The  faith   and enthusiasm  of  new  believers 
is a   lesson  to  us.

I  read this  instructive   story which  I want
to  share here.

There's a story about a ceramics teacher who divided his class into two groups. One group would be graded on the quantity of their work. They were to make as many pots as possible. The other group would be graded on the quality of their work. They were to make as perfect a pot as possible. When the day came to grade the students, the professor was amazed to discover that the group being graded for quantity also had the best quality. The group churning out the most vessels made the finest pieces. The reason? They were learning from their mistakes, so their work was constantly improving. The "quality" group spent all their time working on a single pot, but without the benefit of failures, mistakes, or experience.

Don't be afraid to fail. Proverbs 24:16 (NLT) says, "The godly may trip seven times, but they will get up again." If you've made a mistake or encountered a failure, don't stay down. Failure is often the back door to success.

Success is simple. Do what's right, the right way, at the right time.

Hi Amrita,

Thanks for the story of the pottery makers; it fits my condition.

Major computer and minor physical problems have kept me off line for close to three months now.
