But you, keep your head in all situations, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelist, discharge all the duties of your ministry. (2 Timothy 4:5 NIV)
Each of us have many roles to fill in this life. Each has a duty to discharge that may require enduring hardship causing us to struggle to fulfill. However, keeping our head in these situations, not allowing them to overcome us as we move methodically through the duties of our life is paramount.
This all seems very self-evident when we are not struggling to fill a life role. However, when times test us it is not only this keeping of our heads which will sustain us. It is the coming along side one another and reach out and up for help which gets us through the toughest times and allows us to stand.
