Fall Down Attitude


This Sunday at Calvary Assembly of God we start a brand new series called Fall: We all fall, but falling doesn’t have to be fatal. If we have the right attitude about it, the times that we fall can be some of the most instructional times of our lives.

A man with a great fall down attitude was Thomas Alva Edison. Check out these snippets from this inventor’s life:

“If I find 10,000 ways something won’t work, I haven’t failed.” —Edison’s answer to a newspaper reporter’s question about how he felt about his 10,000 failed attempts to perfect the incandescent light bulb

“Son, there’s great value in disaster. All our mistakes are burnt up. Thank God we can start all over again.” —Edison, at age 67, speaking to his son Charles while they were watching his laboratory being destroyed by fire

“I’ve had a lot of success with failure.”

Falling down doesn’t have to be fatal. With the right attitude, falling down can be one of the most instructional times of our lives. Come join me on Sunday morning at 10:30am to hear more about the attitude that makes success out of failure.

    If you read the biography of most famous people, who have accomplished great things, you will see that they had failed multiple times but got back up and eventually where successful. It’s the ones that can find the strength to keep going that are successful. The ones that choose to have a good attitude and fall forward. That goes for athletes as well. Much time and effort goes into their training and when they get to the point of being consistant, no matter how much pressure they feel, they will be set apart from the others. Sort of like we are supposed to be set apart. Consecrated!
    What is our response when something goes wrong in our day? Unfortunately our response probably isn’t very good at first. Isn’t it a shame that most people will cuss and fall back, I’ve been guilty of this and have to ask God to forgive me. Why don’t we instantly call out to God. That’s the place I want to be in.
    We must choose to fall forward even when we don’t feel like it.
    Can’t wait to hear your message Sunday.
