I keep running hard toward the finish line to get the prize that is mine because God has called me through Christ Jesus to life up there in heaven. – Phil 3:14 (ERV)
I remember when I ran long distances for my track team at school. I recall one of the hardest things to do was to keep running when I started getting tired. Many times, I just wanted to fall to the side of the track and take a breather. However, I learned though that when I started getting tired, I needed to hang in there and just keep running. There was a reward for finishing for my team, if I would just not quit.
This is true in life too. Many times things get hard and we are wired to want to quit. However, when we quit we often miss out. There is power in finishing the things we start. Its really easy to start something, but its how you finish that shows your true character. So choose to be a person of character and finish well in the things you start.
