Monkees at the Circus
Back Home Up Next


The gist of Davyís speech is that we should never give up. The circus is notorious for having ups and downs, he points out, but as long as there are performers, audiences will be there to watch them because the circus is an old and well-loved tradition. God, too, urges us to persevere in spite of trouble. Bad times are a given in a fallen world, but we donít have to let ourselves become overwhelmed when hardships come our way. If we keep working for Him, He will reward us in due course. "Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we faint not" (Galatians 6:9; see also Psalm 27:14; Isaiah 7:9, 40:31; Matthew 10:22, 24:13; Mark 13:13; Luke 21:19; I Corinthians 15:58, 16:13; James 5:8).
