Stupid is a bad word, I know.
Ignorant word used by stupid people. But the word is stupid.
Here’s a worser stupider word, since grammar is now out the door.
That stupid word is “quit”.
What does that word mean anyway? Not by Websters definition but by our own daily, walking through life type of definition.
Quit – (noun, verb adjective, whatever) – To quit, quitter, quitting, quitify, quitasaurus, quitonficate, quittling, quat. To give up, abandon, not continue, crash the plane, to stop all action forward, to walk away from the very reason that you were born.
Today is Thursday before Friday. No change from last week. Except…
Today is the Thursday before Good Friday.
Just looking at this.
What if Christ would have quit his task on Thursday night and said, “Boys, this last meal, this last supper, is truly my last. After we eat, I am walking away. It’s just too much. I am not sure what happens after this, but, I quit.”
The historical consequence of that decision would have been without a way to measure it. I was going to use the word “incalcuable” but I did not know how to spell it and did not want to use spell-check so I’ll use another word.
Instead he used words like these on that night as he prayed.
“I glorified Thee on the earth, having accomplished the work which Thou has given Me to do.”
“But now I come to Thee; and these things I speak i n the world, that they may have My joy made full in themselves.”
“Sanctify them in the truth; Thy word is truth.”
“And I have made Thy name known to them, and will make it known; that the love wherewith Thou didst love me may be in them, and I in them.”
Words like that.
Faint not, don’t quit, keep fighting, be strong, continue forward.
Word it however you want to, but…
Whatever you do, don’t quit.
The very reason you can even have the resolve to not quit is because of the strength that is within you given to you by One who refused to quit.
