A very fast Hare arrogantly challenges a very slow Tortoise to a race. The result was inevitable or was it? The Hare takes a nap along the way, fully confident he’ll still win but the slow and steady Tortoise keeps on keeping on and wins.
As Christ-followers, we can’t afford to lose focus or arrogantly think we’ve got it all sorted. We also need to help each other in the race. So “start running – and never quit! No extra spiritual fat, no parasitic sins. Keep your eyes on Jesus, who both began and finished this race we’re in” (Hebrews 12:1 – http://bit.ly/2Ad1NwS).
