Keep about your work (that God has given you).
Do not flinch because the lion roars.
Do not stop to stone the devil’s dogs.
Do not fool away time chasing the devil’s rabbits.
Do your work.
Let liars lie, let corporations resolve,
Let the devil do his worst, but see to it that nothing hinders you
From fulfilling the work that God has given you.
He has not commanded you to get rich.
He has never bidden you to defend your character.
He has not set you at work to contradict falsehood (about yourself)
Which Satan and his servants may start to peddle.
If you do these things, you will do nothing else:
You will be at work for yourself and not for the Lord.
Keep at your work.
Let your aim be as steady as a star.
You may be assaulted, wronged, insulted,
Slandered, wounded and rejected.
You may be abused by foes, forsaken by friends
And despised and rejected of men
But see to it by steadfast determination, with unfaltering zeal
That you pursue the greatest purpose of your life
and object of your being.
Until at last you can say, “I have finished the work which
You gave me to do.”
