Slugging through the middle

Now you should finish what you started. Let the eagerness you showed in the beginning be matched now by your giving. Give in proportion to what you have. 2 Cor. 8:11

Beginnings are often full of enthusiasm and energy while  a visible finish line provides the motivation to push to the finish. It’s slugging through the middle that requires faith and faithfulness. We serve and give with all we’ve got because goals and needs remain the same whether we are personally moved by them at the moment or not.

Lord, help me keep going and stir my flagging enthusiasm.
