Finishing Strong

“I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day—and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for his appearing.” (2 Timothy 4:7-8)

Walt Whitman

The Bible tells us that our days on planet earth are “numbered/set.” The Scottish Olympic Sprinting champion, Eric Liddell, said, “We’re all given a race to run. We know not if the race is a marathon or a sprint. Only one thing matters: how we run the race.”

May you and I live each day robustly – as though it were our last opportunity to “love God and love our neighbor” (the two greatest commandments.)
