He Never Took It Back

A confession: I love to read Christian biographies!
I get so much encouragement from the lives of current and past followers of Christ.
Here's a very cool snapshot out the life of William Booth, the founder of The Salvation Army:
William Booth served the Lord with unflagging zeal and devotion throughout his long life. He did so despite often vehement opposition from various quarters.
His ever loyal son, Bramwell, once asked him the secret of his strength. In response Booth revealed that as a boy he had knelt at a bare table in the schoolroom of a church. There he vowed that "God should have all that there was of William Booth."
Years later his daughter, Eva, added her perspective: "That wasn't really his secret. His secret was that he never took it back."
