"And let us not lose heart and grow weary and faint in acting nobly and doing right, for in due time and at the appointed season we shall reap, if we do not loosen and relax our courage and faint."
Galatians 6:9 (Amplified Bible)
First, we must always look to Jesus as our example. He came and poured His life out into people, healing them, forgiving them and feeding them both physically and spiritually. Yet at the end of his earthly life most of those people had walked away and left him, and many of his own disciples had badly let him down. He knew what was going to happen long before it actually did, and He knew the weakness and lack in those that He loved. (Matthew 26:34)
