What do Walt Disney and Babe Ruth have in common? They were both failures!

Walt Disney was fired from an ad agency because he didn't draw well. Babe Ruth broke the major league record for strikeouts. But neither one let their failures get in the way of their success. One of today's most successful business leaders, Bill Gates of Microsoft, actually prefers hiring people who have made big mistakes, because it often shows they are willing to be risk takers.

On Good Friday, the world thought Jesus was a failure. But on Resurrection morning, God showed that what the world saw as failure was only the prelude to ultimate vindication and triumph.
