Daily devotional: Persevere through faith and patience

Scripture
God is not unjust; he will not forget your work and the love you have shown him as you have helped his people and continue to help them. We want each of you to show this same diligence to the very end, in order to make your hope sure. We do not want you to become lazy, but to imitate those who through faith and patience inherit what has been promised.
Hebrews 6:10-12 NIV

Observation
We show God our love by working to produce good crops (vv.6-7) as we lovingly help His people. We should not become lazy but rather diligently follow those who are godly examples for us.

Application
Persevere diligently through faith and patience, helping those God has put in my path so that they can grow and mature in their walk with Christ.

Prayer
Lord, thank you for this new day and the productive week You have given me. Thank you for working out all details for Your glory and for opening doors on my behalf. Thank you for giving me godly examples to follow. Please help me persevere through faith and patience. Help me to show others this love for You through helping Your children. Please point out and help me remove any laziness in me. I love you!
