2 Kings 13:18-19
For the full perspective, read all of 2 Kings 13. The point for the king in this event was he quit. He stopped striking the arrow – what Elisha had told him to do – after 3 times. Elisha challenged his quitting and said he should have kept striking the arrow. The analogy for you and I is too often we quit too soon. Whatever the miracle you want in 2023 – health, relationships, finances, work, faith – you’re almost guaranteed to be tempted to stop far too soon. And when it comes, resolve to “strike your arrow” one more day, week, or month.
Question 1: When did you quit on something in life?
Question 2: Why are we tempted to quit when we face resistance?
Challenge: Don’t quit! If you’d like for someone to check in with you on your goal or miracle for 2023, email Brian and he’ll check in with you the last week of January.
