I bet that out all of the creature’s that God has created a snail would be the most likely creature that would know the most about perseverance. Because if you have every seen a snail, they do move so slow and have a bottom that is so slimy, that makes them so slow. And, if you think about the story in the bible, about Noah, the ark, and how all of the creatures that had to go into the ark two by two. One of the only ways the snail could have crawled into the ark probably without being stepped on is by moving carefully and with perseverance.
Now, that I think about it I find Charles Spurgeon to be a very clever person by saying, the quote, “By perseverance the snail reached the ark.” Once you think about it, if it is easy for the snail to have perseverance to glide long-distances. Then I think it is easier for you and everyone else to have perseverance, also. Don’t you think so?
