eSeed: The Safety Pin

Read James 1:5-8
In 1825, Walter Hunt owed a debt of $25.00 – a big sum; and he was broke.

That obstacle didn’t engulf him. It only encouraged him to overcome it.

He took his tools and some wire and tried to make something to sell. Suddenly he realized he had invented something.

Hunt took it to his debtor. He gave him $400 for complete rights to all future sales of his invention. It was the first safety pin.

Troubled? Pray. The Living Bible says, “If you want to know what God wants you to do, ask Him and He will gladly tell you, for He is always ready to give a bountiful supply of wisdom to all who ask Him.”

Prayer: Father, we miss so much when we fail to talk with Thee in prayer, and through prayer to receive into our lives the grace, the strength and wisdom which only Thou canst give. Help us to pray and put feet to our prayers: in Christ. Amen.
