Entitlement is characterized as individuals who "overestimate the short term and underestimate the long term". In other words, entitled people are more likely to quit something early on when the results are not favorable and they tend to lack perseverance when things get tough. Entitlement is a learned skill. God not only wants us to persevere but He commands us to do so because God knows that the process takes time and the harvest is worth it.
Lord, thank You for not suggesting but requiring me to persevere so I don't have a choice.
