We typically reference perseverance in terms of working through hard times. We must also exercise perseverance when we are doing good. Often times, we do good but we don't see the impact or result of our goodness. This will then lull us into a false sense of confidence or even worse, a sense that our goodness is not worthy.
Lord, help me to be good and to continue to be good, even if it isn't rewarded the way I expect.
