  • Grit: Learning from the Apostle Paul

    I have often heard people say that life is a marathon, not a sprint. Still, others have remarked that life is a series of sprints. Either way, that’s a lot of running, and a lot of strides. We will need a ton of endurance along the way.

    The dictionary defines grit as “a firmness of character, or an indomitable spirit.”

    Grit, endurance, an indomitable spirit, whatever you want to call it, it is a trait that few people possess. Yet, we can all grow in it!
