Thomas Jefferson once said, “When we see ourselves in a situation which must be endured and gone through, it is best to make up our minds todoit, meet it with firmness and accommodate everything to it in the best way practicable. This lessens the evil, while fretting and fuming only serves to increase your own torments.”
Persistence is greatly needed among God’s people today. Too often we are inclined to put off doing those things that are not always pleasant, or that might be uncomfortable. It is not always pleasant to confront a brother or sister in sin. It is not always easy to do the right things in a hostile crowd. It is not always comfortable to say what needs to be said and do what needs to be done. It is always best just to make up our minds and do it. Time does not ease our labor – it only makes it more difficult.
We need to accept the advice of Paul, “Wherefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labor is not vain in the Lord”(1 Cor. 15:58).
“Just do it!”
Think About It!
Have A Great Day!
