“When he hath tried me, I shall come forth as gold.” —Job 23:10
“As long as we exercise love, patience, and understanding, even when no progress is apparent, we are not failing. We must keep trying. …To become a winner in the race for eternal life requires effort—constant work, striving, and enduring well with God’s help.” —Marvin J. Ashton
