They Win Every Time
The hand of the diligent will rule,
while the slothful will be put to forced labor.—Proverbs 12:24
As you mature, you realize there is something about hardworking people. There is wisdom for us to learn from their diligence. They understand that eventually, they will win, not because they're smarter or more gifted than others, but instead, they are a little more diligent than others.
So are you about to quit? Have you hit your wit's end on a challenge or relationship?
If so, pray to God for strength but be diligent and don't become slothful. You have no idea what one more day of diligence might teach you—and the payout is great.
DO THIS: Write down one thing you want to quit on, and why you want to quit.
PRAY THIS: God, I want to quit on this [insert the thing you wrote down] because [insert your reason] but give me the strength of your Spirit to carry on.
