"As for you, always be sober-minded, endure suffering, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry."
2 Timothy 4:5
It has been awhile since I posted any of my One Thing! devotions. There is no excuse, I know, but my pretended excuse is that I write so much for school that I don't have time or desire to write anything else. It doesn't hold water though; my devotions are the most important part of my day. So, today I wanted to share 2 Timothy 4:5 from my One Thing! reading.
A definition for endure is, "To bear with patience; to bear without opposition or sinking under the pressure." Am I enduring the little things I consider suffering? Or am I just putting up with them? Am I fulfilling my ministry -- even when it isn't easy?
So, my One Thing! for today is: Don't sink under the pressure. Endure patiently the big and little things that trouble me.
