Inspired by the words of others


by Derrel Emmerson - May 18, 2015

“We all gain from the words of others taking what they have taught us and multiplying it through our faith, thought and our lives. Thus truth comes and is magnified through the believer from one generation to another.” D. Emmerson, Editor

George Washington Carver and Booker T. Washington were important models of Christian living in their time and demonstrated faith, character, boldness, generosity, sacrifice, forgiveness, and the joy of life. They should be studied by all believers who take instruction from Christian examples of all ages. They lived out their faith in opposition and showed all believers how to live.

Booker T. Washington was a superb administrator, advocate for other and leader who taught people to be practical in their faith. He taught the downtrodden to put their “buckets” in the water in which they found themselves for resources instead of pining for better places. He placed character as a premier means to success in one’s life. He changed the lives of thousands with that message.

George Washington Carver, a scientist, discovered many useful products through chemistry and said, “God is going to reveal to us things He never revealed before if we put our hands in His. No books ever go into my laboratory. The thing I am to do and the way of doing it are revealed to me. I never have to grope for methods. The method is revealed to me the moment I am inspired to create something new. Without God to draw aside the curtain I would be helpless.” Carver showed us how to tap the mind of the Maker.
