Quitting Time

| 0:56 MIN READ |

You’ve heard the famous Vince Lombardi maxim, “Winners never quit, and quitters never win.” There is great power in perseverance, diligence, grit, old fashioned “gutting it out.” These things pay high dividends.

The Bible teaches us the value of not giving up. One of the most well-known Bible passages reminding us of this truth is found in Galatians 6:9 (NIV) “Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.”

There are rewards when you keep going, even when your soul is demanding that you quit. And it’s true, many people give up in frustration on the brink of a breakthrough. Far too many wearily walk off the field, only inches away from the goal line.

But is there ever a good and right time to quit something? Yes. At times we’re called to abandon certain things. Here are a few examples.

It’s wise to quit:

  • Unhealthy habits.
  • Sinful attitudes and behaviors.
  • Negative thinking.
  • Destructive friendships.
  • Anything inconsistent with God’s will.

What do you need to quit today?
