We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they are good for us – they help us learn to be patient. And patience develops strength of character in us and helps us trust God more each time we use it until finally our hope and faith are strong and steady. Romans 5:3-4 TLB.
Endurance is steady determination to keep going. It means continuing even when everything in you wants to slow down or give up. John MacArthur
Endurance and perseverance are at the heart of character. Suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope.
