The only way of finding the limits of the possible is by going beyond them into the impossible.
— Arthur C. Clarke
Let not others dictate what we can and cannot do. Everyone has been given abilities and latent talent. Without trying to explore these abilities, they remain buried. In the gospel of Matthew, Jesus said, “You are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.” With this, we are told of the enormous possiblities laying dormant within us. We are also told that we should develop them so that we benefit ourselves and others, and give glory to our Creator.
We can’t travel great distance over water, but we have created ships so that we may do so. We were not given wings with which to fly, but we have invented airplanes to soar across the skies. We have climb the highest mountains. We have begun to plumb the depths of the oceans. We have been to the Moon and returned. So before you tell yourself you can’t do something, as I always tell my son, “You won’t know until you’ve tried.”
