It's Time to Run!

A quote from a book came to my mind today.

“Every morning in Africa, a gazelle wakes up, it knows it must outrun the fastest lion or it will be killed. Every morning in Africa, a lion wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the slowest gazelle, or it will starve. It doesn't matter whether you're the lion or a gazelle-when the sun comes up, you'd better be running.” (Christopher McDougall – Born to Run)

You and I also wake up each day with the need to run. Some things require that we run away from them like Joseph when he ran away from Potiphar’s wife. At other times we run toward a conflict like David when he ran toward Goliath. The decision of what direction to run will determine your spiritual survival. Joseph’s run preserved his integrity. David’s run defined his destiny. Both runs were significant in their outcomes.

Today you will be offered choices and each will require you to run. Run wisely. So much depends on the direction you choose to run.

“Therefore, since we have so great a cloud of witnesses surrounding us, let us also lay aside every encumbrance and the sin which so easily entangles us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us.” Hebrews 12:1
