I grew up hearing; “if at first you don’t succeed, try, try again.”
The idea is to persevere, never give up. Numerous illustrations have been given to paint the picture of perseverance.
Basically, to persevere is to be steadfast in doing something despite difficulty or delay in achieving success.
It would seem the greater the goal, the greater the difficulty and challenge to succeed. However, regardless of the goal, or the task to reach the goal, facing difficulty or defeat can quickly dishearten anyone from finishing the course.
Spiritual leadership involves dealing with the personal application of perseverance, but also helping others persevere for themselves and the group.
The diligence of giving it one more try can make the difference in moving forward or stopping in our tracks.
If the goal is worth the effort, then give it one more try.
If we have the needed resources, then give it one more try.
If there is an opportunity, then give it one more try.
When we think we have reached the end of the line, perhaps giving it one more try, will change it all.
