I remember a time in my life when I was tired and almost quit. It was my second year in graduate school. Bills were piling up and the workload was unbearable. I almost quit. Do you ever ask yourself, “Why do I put up with all of this?” Working with others often results in strained relationships, disappointments, even pain. All of us will sometimes dream of what life was like before we were so committed to our present work.
The lesson for quitters is clear. Don’t look back to a better time; the comfort zone is a myth. Don’t look for pleasant perks; the compelling force in your life must be a love for the best in Christ. Don’t look at others; the comparison game always disappoints. Don’t miss God’s best. You will never know the exciting future of growing significance for your Lord if you quit. Don’t quit!
