I am of the opinion that the human body was not designed to run unless chased by a big beast, sporting big teeth, evil eyes and grievous intent. Proverbs 28:1a (http://bit.ly/2Wwqxqd) seems to support this view, “The wicked run away when no one is chasing them” (mic drop).
But then there’s the rest of the verse, “but the godly are as bold as lions” Proverbs 28:1b (http://bit.ly/2Wwqxqd). It is the character of a lion (the stuff inside) that makes it King of the Jungle. So young Simba, fill up with godliness so that you may stand boldly for righteousness – and make King Jesus proud.
