Day Two Hundred Sixteen 2012

By perseverance the snail reached the ark.
~Charles Spurgeon

There’s a lesson in there for us. I like these dictionary definitions of the word perseverance.

perseverance n  
continued steady belief or efforts, withstanding discouragement or difficulty; persistence
Christianity persistence in remaining in a state of grace until death

If perseverance can pay off for a lowly snail, then I know that God will reward his obedient and faithful servants with an eternal home in heaven.
Happy TGIF, everyone!
