A missionary society wrote to David Livingston and suggested that if he could ensure them of safe roads that they would send him some help. He responded with the following note:
“If you have men that will only come if they have a good road, I don’t want them. I want men who will come if there is no road at all.”
Somewhere in our modern-day, comfort-driven society we lost the determination it takes to stay committed. In the Scriptures we learn that the worthwhile things are never what comes by doing the “easy” tasks. We miss opportunities by trying to avoid testing. When we get committed, we will endure to the end the task that has been set before us.
