Dr. Washington’s favorite scriptures are found in James 1:11-12 and Ecclesiastes 9:11. James 1:11-12 says “…for the sun rises with scorching wind and withers the grass, and its flower falls off and the beauty of its appearance is destroyed; so too the rich man in the midst of his pursuits will fade away. Blessed is a man/woman who perseveres under trial for once he/she has been approved, he/she will receive the crown of life which the Lord has promised to those who love Him.” Ecclesiastes 9:11 reads, “I returned, and I saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favour to men of skill; but time and chance happeneth to them all.”
