For twenty-three years, from the thirteenth year of Josiah the son of Amon, king of Judah, to this day, the word of the LORD has come to me, and I have spoken persistently to you, but you have not listened. You have neither listened nor inclined your ears to hear, although the LORD persistently sent to you all his servants the prophets...
Jeremiah 25:3-4

Persistence can be a good thing
when good people
obey the good words
of a good God
and blessings come from heaven

Persistence can be a bad thing
when stubbornly sinful people
resist God's Word
and turn from Him
and find justice falling from His hand

The difference in persistence
is the character
of a human heart
and its submission to God
the Creator, Savior, and Rewarder of those who diligently seek Him
