Xenophon, Anabasis 5:8
Dr. David R. Denny
A fierce, wintery wind whipped the beaten soldiers as they trudged through the Pontic Mountains toward the Black Sea. Artaxerxes had chased them for weeks, and the Greek army was exhausted. One by one, they fell, frostbitten, and defeated by winter’s merciless breath…
Paul said it best: “Bear one another’s burdens, and thereby fulfill the law of Christ…And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not (Gal. 6:2/9).
Put the shovel down!
Don’t let weariness win.
“I know not age, nor weariness nor defeat.”
