Samuel Morse and the Telegraph October 19, 2015

“I knew I had made a valuable contribution to mankind, not because I was brilliant but because God chose me to convey this gift to the world.” That’s what Samuel Morse, inventor of the telegraph said. He would have had every right to feel proud of his accomplishment, but he thought differently, giving the credit to God, His Maker. Somebody once said, “ It is amazing how much you can get done if you don’t care who gets the credit, as long as God gets the glory.” The first words ever sent by telegraph were, “What God hath wrought!” That should be our attitude about any successes we may have had. God makes it all possible. Paul wrote, that “in all things, He should have the preeminence.” This is especially true in regards to becoming a true Christian. Paul wrote, “By grace are you saved through faith, and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God, not of works lest anyone should boast.” We should all say with the hymn writer, “Nothing in my hands I bring, simply to your cross I cling.”
