Persevering to the End

Harland Sanders had a life full of challenges. Vocationally, Sanders tried the Army, being a blacksmith, a life insurance salesman, and even as a lawyer.

Sanders started multiple businesses, but most failed. At 65 years old, Sanders persevered to make one last attempt to use his God-given gift of cooking!

By the time he was 73, Colonel Sanders had 600 locations and sold Kentucky Fried Chicken for $2 million.

The Apostle Paul said in 2 Thessalonians 3:5, “May the Lord direct your hearts into God’s love and Christ’s perseverance.”

Baptized at 79 years old, Colonel Sanders later said, “Dedicate your life to Jesus Christ. Whatever difficulties you may have to face, turn to him, recognize him and render him all your glory, and he will help you overcome.”
