On Diligence

In this era of instant gratification
And presumed recompense
We seem to discredit
Humble diligence

Its pay-off is patient
Its battle is long
Yet, in its commitment
The weak become strong

We ought not to grow weary
In doing our best
For only the diligent
Truly pass life’s test

The lesson I taught to Grades 5&6 this past Sunday in Sunday School was on diligence. It spoke to me on so many levels.


  1. Indeed thank-you. Sommer brought that word up at the supper table the other night...(she ran to check what it was again:)

  2. Good for Sommer:) I've been thinking about it a lot too.


Thank-you for stopping by my porch! I hope you were blessed!
