What would you include if you were constructing a “Survival Kit for Life”? Perseverance would be high on my list. Without it, one doesn’t get far. Perseverance finds it strength in faith. Knowing that there is more to life than the current difficult moment and that God waits at the end of the journey with a reward—these truths feed our perseverance. Character grows through perseverance. God gives us sustaining power. What trial are you pressing through today? A crown of life awaits you. Persevere in faith.
