It’s ok to say something is really hard. It’s ok to say I haven’t succeeded yet. It’s not ok to quit or surrender. If it’s the right thing to do we should continue to pursue it. This is called perseverance and it’s the subject of the 4th message from our Growing in Faith series based on 2 Peter 1:5-8.
Scripture has some important things to say about this subject and the critical role it plays in our growth as a follower of Christ.
