Perseverance

I’ve been thinking about perseverance today. First I had to learn to spell it correctly, all the time. I liked the definition:

steadfastness in doing something despite difficulty or delay in achieving success

It adds a nobility to the concept, rather than just drudgery, and I felt encouraged. But I was delighted to read a secondary meaning, a theological one:

continuance in a state of grace leading finally to a state of glory

I’ll have some of that, please! Totally worth perservering for.
