But God, Perseverance!
Like going to college, it's so easy to give up and say Christianity is too hard! I can't do it! I don't want to suffer! It's too hard! Man, forget this!
But don't give up on either one. The reward is at the end of your suffering. No matter what setting you find yourself in, only you can determine the outcome. Persevere until you overcome whatever obstacles life throws your way. You are not alone!
