Word of the Day: Endurance

Nov 13, 2021 | Words of Wisdom

ENDURANCE – the ability to withstand hardship or adversity; the act or an instance of enduring or suffering

Keep going. Hold on. God’s rewards await us in the distant future, not near the beginning; and we don’t know how many steps it will take to reach the prize. No breaks or time outs exist; we must work every day of our life. It has been said, “Life is like reading a book. It begins to make sense when we are near the end.” Endurance maintains the stamina needed to see the end and embrace the prize.

Scripture: 1 Thessalonians 1:3

“We remember before our God and Father your work produced by faith, your labor prompted by love, and your endurance inspired by hope in our Lord Jesus Christ.”


“Endurance is not just the ability to bear a hard thing, but to turn it into glory.”

–William Barclay
