Row Vs. Wade


General George Washington faced a great challenge when planning his crossing of the Delaware. The river was extremely low that year due to meager rainfall and very warm temperatures.
The near-drought conditions made it so there was a question as to whether there would be enough river depth to float the General's boats. He had to decide if it was worth the gamble that the boats could make it, or if he and his men should trudge through the mud, to face the British.
Washington, who had a great sense of that which is historically important, decided that no famous oil painting could be made of a bunch of rag-tag soldiers hoofing it through the mud, so he said to his men, "boats it will be, men!"
And there you have it. The first "row vs. wade" decision.

May the Lord bless you and keep you
