1 Corinthians 15:58
Therefore, my dear brothers, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.
Giving up has been labeled as "the easy way out." This isn't true because whatever you gave up on will eat at you mentally, physically, and spiritually. There will always be a constant reminder of how different things could be if you had not given up on something in your past. So, it would behoove us not to keep striving for excellence because your hard will be proven by your victory when you finish. Today, don't give up on anything! Keep pushing and striving! "Your faith must reach a level that fear cannot reach" – Rev. Dr. Joseph A. Hooper
