Sermon Illustrations

Norman V Peale wrote a book called, “The Power of Positive Thinking.” His manuscript was turned down by 18 different publishing companies. In his disgust he threw the manuscript in a trash can, but his wife Marquette went to get the manuscript out of the can. Rev. Peale dared her to, so she leaves the papers inside the can, and takes the trash can to another publishing company. Today some 40 million copies latter it’s still a best seller!
