Perseverance, an Important Quality

From the January 1972 issue of The Christian Science Journal

There is nothing quite so satisfying as enjoying the fruits of one's labor. Worthy accomplishment brightens the life of many an individual. When one faces up to his responsibilities and meets them successfully, he is victorious, and his experience bears witness to the good he identifies and expresses.

Perseverance is an important quality to cultivate. Every claim of laziness, carelessness, and refusal to carry through to successful conclusion can be destroyed through this attribute.

Webster's Third New International Dictionary gives as part of the definition of "perseverance": "continuance in a state of religious or spiritual grace until it is succeeded by a state of glory."
