Adventuresome and courageous pioneers have often faced the critical laughter of jealous observers. 

The first American steamboat took thirty-two hours to go from New York to Albany. People laughed.

The horse and buggy passed the early motor car as if it were standing still (it usually was). People laughed.

The first electric light bulb was so dim that people had to use a gas lamp to see it. They laughed.

The first airplane came down fifty-nine seconds after it left the ground. People laughed.

If you try to tackle a big job, or if you have new ideas, expect criticism! People will laugh.

Thanks to Michael Green for sharing this.

What was a big job or a new idea you had that drew criticism?

LIFE BEGINS ONCE JESUS BECOMES THE REASON YOU LIVE YOUR LIFE.
