Memory Verse

“Let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.”

In this episode, Liz hears some stories about perseverance. You show perseverance in your own life. For example, you can continue to have good behavior at school, even when you are having a bad day. You can be a part of a team, even when you don't get to play. You can practice a musical instrument, even when you are tired of playing the same song over and over again. It’s hard, but be encouraged! The next time you are in the middle of doing something hard, think about Noah. He didn't quit, but he didn't do it alone either. He cried out to God for help. God helped him, and God promises to help you too. That's a promise you can count on!
