Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.
For our homeschool curriculum this year we are memorizing the book of James. We’ve finished chapter one and are now studying chapter two. But we need to keep reviewing chapter one, and I smile to myself every time I recite verse 4, because I see a pun. Perseverance is exactly “must finish” and yet here it’s talking about perseverance growing in the believer so that we can become mature and complete. Learning to persevere: not quit, not run.
…my hope is that perseverance will finish its work!
Looking back over the 31 Days project, this is the last post since I missed two Sundays…perseverance!
