We all face the common challenge to 'give in' or 'give up'. There are times when this action revert to having something better, however, in most cases it is a deadly sign of defeat. Life is like a race, we fight to reach the top (of everything). For some life becomes unbearable, too much fuss, too much work and thus bring it to an end by taking their own lives. It is their 'sense of winning' the race, but actually life has defeated them, permanently.
When you face a discouraging moment, when you're weary and you feel like giving up (the challenge), either to live for God or to achieve an honorable goal in life. Remember to keep your eyes focused on the goal, or on the prize that will be paid; focusing on the obstacles or challenges that may come before as you seek to achieve will only lead you to defeat.
