Quote of the Day – Psalm 126 on Perseverance

Fields of WheatThose who sow with tears
will reap with songs of joy.
Those who go out weeping,
carrying seed to sow,
will return with songs of joy,
carrying sheaves with them.

- Psalm 126 : 5 – 6 (NIV)

The week has come full-circle to yet another Sunday, so today’s Quote of the Day is a brief note from the book of Psalms reminding us of the rewards of perseverance.  This Psalm was written specifically during a time of stress and transition for Israel, but it applies generally as well – a promise that we can all fall back on.  Even though our current labors may be “sown with tears” during times of difficulty, we can rest assured that if we persevere, we will see those works returned to us as blessings.

Enjoy your Sunday as a day of rest and reflection as you prepare for the week ahead!
