Not giving up takes determination

Proverbs 21:5 (AMP)  5 The thoughts of the [steadily] diligent tend only to plenteousness, but everyone who is impatient and hasty hastens only to want.   

Growing roots and bearing good fruit takes time.  We tend to be impatient and hasty.  We always seem to want results much quicker than they come. Impatience is a fruit of the flesh but Godly patience is a fruit of the spirit.  Patience is not just the ability to wait.  We are going to have to wait whether we want to or not.  Waiting is a fact of life.  For example, pregnancy takes nine months and it goes through stages.

Starting something is not difficult, it is when we get to the middle of what we are working toward that things seem to get hard.  We are the only ones who can decide if we will go through something or make the decision to give up because things seem too difficult.  It is easy to give up and quit.  Be determined to never give up because the end result is worth the pain and the wait.

My true belief is that the best way to preach is by our actions and not our words. However, we need some daily inspiration to keep us on our path. We as Christians have a responsibility not to judge others by our words but to show the love of Christ by loving them where they are at on their personal journey in life...and if they never turn their life over to Christ, continue to love them for who they are - after all God does.
