Always be sober.  Endure hardships, do the work of preaching the Gospel, and carry out your ministry to the fullest extent.  – 2 Tim 4:5

Reflection.  A book by Laurence J. Peter, a Canadian psychologist, entitled The Peter Principle, was rejected by 30 publishers before the William Morrow Company gave it a chance.  It went on to sell over 200,000 copies in the first year, and made a small fortune for its author who never gave up trying.

Prayer.  Jesus, grant me the grace to persevere, especially when it comes to doing Your Will.
