When You Feel like Quitting

Have you ever thought about what the world would be like if people such as George Washington, Susan B. Anthony, Abraham Lincoln, or Martin Luther King, Jr. had quit when the going got hard? There would be no United States of America, no right to vote for women, no freedom for the slaves, no landmark civil rights legislation.

The list above could have included hundreds of other names and legacies. Yours could be on it and so could mine, because we are all engaged in monumental battles of our own. Any significant accomplishment requires tremendous struggle, and at times, the people involved are tempted to give up.

Those times are among life’s most profound moments. They’re the times when empires rise or fall, fortunes are won or lost, personal destinies are built or destroyed.

What gets us through these times? Our Christian faith teaches us that God’s strength is far greater than our own. Even more, the Bible gives us many inspiring examples of people who overcame the toughest odds and accomplished great things.

This Sunday, we’ll focus on this theme with insights from the prophecy of Isaiah and the Revelation of St. John the Divine.

Let’s come together and bring our food for South Providence Neighborhood Ministries as we gather at the Lord’s table in worship.

With love and blessings,
