Sometimes persistence will get you further than friendship will. Jesus said that if we went to a friend and asked him for food, because another one of our friends had come to town and we were not prepared and it was late at night, that though the friend from whom we asked for food would not give the food because of our friendship, yet, if we persisted the friend would give in and give what we asked.
However, God is not like that. He will give what we need because He loves us and is our Father. Therefore, if persistence pays off with an unwilling friend, it will surely pay off with a willing heavenly Father (Luke 11:5–8).
Be persistent.
