Memory Verse

“Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.”

Audio Icon   1 Corinthians 15:58



In this episode, Liz has a hard time raising money to go to Ireland. Have you ever been tempted to give up on doing something that just isn't working? Sometimes giving up is the wise thing to do, but not always. Sometimes God wants us to persevere, to stand firm in what he has given us to do, even when there don’t seem to be any results. Many years ago the organization that produces Kids Corner began a ministry in the Arabic language. For three years there was no response. There was not a single letter or phone call. There was nothing to show that the work was reaching anyone. But the pastor and the organization persevered and today there is a successful Christian radio ministry in Arabic. Every day there are letters, text messages, and emails that show that the message is making a difference. Because the organization stood firm, their labor was not in vain.

Want to dig deeper about image reflecting? Read 2 Corinthians 3:18, Genesis 1:26-27 and Matthew 5:16.


Reflecting God’s image means that people around you can see God through your actions and words. If your actions are Christ-like, then God’s light will shine through you. Persevering is an important life skill. It not only helps you to accomplish something that is difficult, it builds confidence in your ability to take on challenging tasks. Next time you are tempted to give up on a difficult task, think about today’s story and the story of the apostles. Remember that you are working for God. Then make a decision to persevere, and remember to look to God for help. He will bless your efforts when you work for Him!
