Do you realize that the key to effective Christian living is to look at your life as a race? That’s how the Apostle Paul looked at it. He said “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.” (II Tim 4:7)
Every morning when you wake up, you have a choice. You can choose not to run, but if you don’t run, you can’t win. You can choose to run, but not run your best; and if you don’t run your best, you are sure to lose – – or you can choose to run your best and strive for the prize by focusing on the finish.
