Giving up

Sometimes the task ahead is too hard, especially when you have tried time and again and perhaps failed in the process. You may be too tired of trying, too old, too sick, or funds are low. There may be many other reasons why you can't go on any longer and the temptation of giving up is just too great and appealing.

On His way to Calvary Christ fell three times. He'd been tortured, beaten, spat upon and ridiculed. Betrayed by His own disciple, denied by another, and despised by many who days earlier had gathered to listen to His teachings. He even felt that His own Father in Heaven had abandoned Him. The temptation to remain there on the ground must have been great. But He got up and went on to His Crucifixion; to do His Father's will.

May His divine example encourage us to go on.
