Week 8 • Day 5 • Meditate

“Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain.”
1 Corinthians 15:58

Paul talks about persistence and steadfastness often. He encourages us to press forward, to not give up.

Because he knows suffering is part of the deal. It’s how we bear fruit.

And he knows that in order to overcome hardship, we must be strong, do the right thing.

Be excellent in all that we do.

Do you feel like giving up?

Meditate on this verse today and let it encourage you. It’s not over. You can do this.
