"I'm the greatest hitter in the world!" he announced.
Then he tossed the ball into the air, swing at it and missed.
"Strike one," he yelled.
Without flinching, he picked the ball up and again announced, "I'm the greatest hitter in the world!"
He tossed the ball into the air, swing his bat and missed, shouting, "Strike two!"
The kid paused a moment to carefully examine his bat and the ball. He spits on his hands and rubbed them together.
He straightened his cap and said once more, "I'm the greatest hitter in the world."
Again he tossed the ball up in the air and swung at the ball.
He missed and shouted, "Strike three!" "WOW," the kid shouted, "I'm the greatest pitcher in the world."
The little kid's circumstances in this story hadn't changed, but his determination to have a good attitude prompted him to see another aspect of his life he would have never seen if he was only concerned about his failures.
Even in failure, there are things that we are capable of doing!
Hebrews 11:34 tells us,
"...whose weakness was turned to strength; and who became powerful in battle and routed foreign armies."
