Effort only fully releases its reward after a person refuses to quit. (Napoleon Hill, late self-help author)
When it becomes hard to complete an assigned task or to reach a long dreamed of goal, it’s tempting to give up. We’ve worked so hard, putting a lot of sweat and energy into it, and we think we’ve gone as far as we could. That’s when Hill says our reward will be achieved only if we don’t give up.
One day Jesus told his disciples a story to show that they should always pray and never give up. (Luke 18:1)
