The Race to the Finish
Our neighbor and pal Milciades is really athletic. He registered for his longest race yet, a half-marathon in Asuncion that took place yesterday. The night before, we looked at the map of the race route, and I tried to zoom in close enough to read all the street names. This was a really big race, though, with fast jokers from Kenya coming in to run, and some lightning quick runners on the list. With all the hype, I didn't think memorizing the route was really necessary. "They mark these things well."
And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us... (Heb 12:1)
I have fought the good fight, I have finished the course, I have kept the faith (2 Tim 4:7)
