Most people are starters and stoppers, not finishers. (Christine Caine, Australian author)
Caine’s statement probably strikes a sense of guilt in many of us. How many projects have we started with enthusiasm but given up before they were finished? How about the diets we’ve begun only to quit before reaching our weight goal? It’s a sad commentary about our perseverance, isn’t it? Maybe we need to find companions who will. help us finish the course.
Finishing is better than starting. Patience is better than pride (Ecclesiastes 7:8).
I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, and I have remained faithful (2 Timothy 4:7).
