Do Not Grow Weary
And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart. Galations 6:9
"That's it, I've had it...Enough is enough...We'll never change this nation...It's hopeless...I give up...I quit."
The temptation to quit is very powerful. That is because like most other temptations, it does not take any effort at all to quit.
Sometimes we cloak "I quit" with nicer sounding words like "I guess it doesn't matter", or "let's just go with the flow". For a minute that sounds good, because it is easy to float downstream. Just watch any dead fish! But to swim against the tide takes great vision, determination, sacrifice and effort.
If you are feeling the temptation to quit on our nation's future, take a minute to turn that around right now. Public service can be very discouraging. It is likely that your representatives are facing serious discouragement as well. Pray for our leaders. Pray for those who are standing for truth and morality. Pray that God will grant them the courage to keep on keeping on...and most of all, to never quit.
Christian duty is to VOTE!
