My First Run: Part 3
Is it any wonder that the Apostle Paul referred to running so often in the New Testament?Â “We run this race with patience that is set before us,” he says.Â “Don’t you know that in a race, all the runners compete for the prize?”Â For a great number of people, the similarities are meaningless because they have never run.Â But you do not have to have the experience to understand the point.
Life is a marathon,
not a sprint.Â
And the best part about running the race of life as a Christian is that I always have a companion who knows more than I do and can run farther than me, but will always stay right with me to make sure I make it to the finish line.
