What Went Wrong

What Went Wrong

Sunday 4th July 2021 Devotion
Scripture:- Genesis 12:1-20
Topic:- What Went Wrong

There was a very brilliant boy, he always scored 100% in Science.

Got Selected for IIT Madras and scored excellent in IIT.

Went to the University of California for MBA.

Got a high-paying job in America and settled there.

Married a Beautiful Tamil Girl. Bought a 5 room big house and luxury cars.

He had everything that makes him successful but a few years ago he committed suicide after shooting his wife and children.

WHAT WENT WRONG? California Institute of Clinical Psychology Studied his case and found, “what went wrong?”

The researcher met the boy’s friends and family and found that he lost his job due to America’s economic crisis and he had to sit without a job for a long time.

After even reducing his previous salary amount, he didn’t get any job.

Then his house installment broke and he and his family lost the home.

They survived a few months with less money and then he and his wife together decided to commit suicide.

He first shot his wife and children and then shot himself.

The case concluded that the man was Programmed for *success* but he was not trained for handling failures.

Now let’s come to the actual question. What are the habits of highly successful people?

First of all, I want to tell you that if you have achieved everything, there is a chance to lose everything, nobody knows when the next economic crisis will hit the world.

The best success habit is getting trained for handling failures.

I want to request every parent, please do not only program your child to be successful but teach them how to handle failures, and also teach them proper lessons about life.

Learning high-level Science and Maths will help them to clear competitive exams but knowledge about life will help them to face every problem.

Teach them about how money works, instead of teaching them to work for money.

Help them in finding their passion because these degrees will not help them in the next economic crisis and we don’t know when the next crisis will hit the world.

“Success is a lousy teacher. Failure teaches you more.”

Prayer Point:-
Oh Lord God, help me to understand both success and failure so as to apply my heart to wisdom henceforth by fire, in the name of Jesus Christ.

Happy Lord’s Day!

If you want to give your life to Christ; you want your sins forgiven; you want to become a child of God; you want to experience the realities of new birth; you want to make heaven;

Or you were once saved and fell along the line, and now you want to rededicate your life to Christ…

Then pray this short prayer of Faith

Say it loud and mean it:

“Lord Jesus, I surrender my life to you today. Forgive me my sins, wash me with your blood. I believe you died for me, on the third day you rose again that I may be justified. Right now, I believe that my sins are forgiven; I’m justified by your blood; I’m born-again; I’m saved; I’m a child of God; I’m free from the power of sin to serve the living God. Thank you Jesus for receiving me; thank you Jesus for restoring me; thank you Jesus for saving me.

Thank God for your soul. I congratulate you for the best decision of your life. For further details on how to grow in this new light, please click the CONTACT page or visit TACN or any bible believing church near you and ask for the pastor in charge.
