STOP AND THINK – Never falter in striving for something worthy. If it is worthy, it’s worth it. (Bill Katip, college president)

Sometimes we give up too soon. If a task or project proves fruitless, it’s probably best to abandon it. But if what you’re struggling with has good goals and will produce something of value, you must not give up. Take a deep breath, ask God for strength, and move ahead to achieve a worthy end. It will give you a great sense of fulfillment when it’s completed.

For you know that we dealt with each of you as a father deals with his own children, encouraging, comforting and urging you to live lives worthy of God (1 Thessalonians 2:11-12).
