“…let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us...” - Hebrews 12:1 b
The old story about the contest between the tortoise and the hare reminds us of a fundamental truth: “slow and steady” wins the race! It’s an encouraging thought for those days when we are overwhelmed and feel like we have too much to handle. The story’s moral might just come from the sense that God Himself is empowering us to endure by His goodness and grace. He sees all our days, He knows what obstacles are in the way, and He walks with us to help us overcome. No matter what you are facing today, persevere! God is giving us the power to stand strong until we finally make it through!
