Wednesday, August 1

Let endurance complete its work, so that you may be complete and sound in all respects, not lacking in anything.—Jas. 1:4.


The battle was grueling. Israelite soldiers led by Judge Gideon had chased their enemies—the Midianite army and its allies—all night for a distance of some 20 miles (32 km)! The Israelites knew that this was no time to give up. So to eliminate the enemy, “they kept up the pursuit” and subdued Midian. (Judg. 7:22; 8:4, 10, 28) We too are fighting a relentless battle. Our enemies include Satan, his world, and our own imperfections. Some of us have battled for decades, and with Jehovah’s help, we gained victories. At times, though, we may get tired of battling our enemies and of waiting for the end of this system of things. Indeed, we have not yet won the complete victory. Jesus warned that we who live in the last days would face severe trials and cruel mistreatment, but he also said that gaining the victory would depend on our endurance.—Luke 21:19. w16.04 2:1, 2

For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.
