KEEP AT IT!
Little Leslie looked out the window at a large snowbank that blocked the sidewalk to the front door. He decided to do something about it. Bundling up in his warmest clothes, he got a snow shovel, went outside, and began to remove the snow.
His neighbor was walking by and said to him, “How can such a small child like you expect to remove so much snow?”
Looking at the man in the eye he said, “My Dad told me that if I don’t give up and keep at something, I can always get through it!”
The committed person is not the one who sees through something. The committed person is the one who sees something through!
Paul said that Christians are to “stay true to the Lord.” This is often difficult to do. We need to constantly and continually remind ourselves to keep our eyes on Jesus and never forget that this world is not our home. We need to “see through” until we “see what is”: heaven.
George Whitfield constantly prayed, “Lord keep a thorn in my nest so I won’t get too comfortable and forget that I am here on this earth to work for You every day of my life.”
Prayer: Lord, give us the courage to stay with You, see life through You, and remain steadfast in You, show those around us that we love You and look forward to being with You. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
Scripture For Today: Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stay true to the Lord. I love you and long to see you, dear friends, for you are my joy and the crown I receive for my work. Philippians 4:1
