EUR MOTIVATIONAL NOTE

The Eighth Day of Christmas – “Share The Gift of Perseverance!

Scripture says, “The race does not go to the swift nor to the strong, but to the one that perseveres until the end!” This Christmas, I encourage you to persevere. Most people give up too soon; like the man who was digging for gold, became frustrated, gave up and walked away. He left the shovel in the ground, and a short while later, another man came along, picked up the shovel and starting digging, and dug six more feet and hit a major vein of gold. The first man gave up six feet too soon! Don’t give up…keep digging and keep going after your dreams! This Christmas, share the gift of perseverance! – Willie Jolley
