Never Give Up

While on this earth, our temporary home, there will be times in your life that will want to give up. Don't.  Keep reaching and pressing toward the mark, knowing that there is a crown set aside for you as well as who are just and a just want that lives by faith.  Don't be remembered as one who turned or looked back. Remember the words of Hebrews as well as Genesis:  

 Hebrews 10:39  Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him. 39 But we are not of them who draw back unto perdition; but of them that believe to the saving of the soul.

Genesis 19:17 And it came to pass, when they had brought them forth abroad, that he said, Escape for thy life; look not behind thee, neither stay thou in all the plain; escape to the mountain, lest thou be consumed.....26 But his wife looked back from behind him, and she became a pillar of salt.

When God has brought us out of Harm's way, and we choose to look or turn back, it can bring an immediate end to one's life.  For Lot's wife, some may look at it as a little things but it is the little things that spoil the vine.
