Part 2 of the blog: “The Race of Life”
2) Obstacles and Challenges in life
As the race continued, I suddenly found myself slowly but surely passing by some of the 10K race participants. I realized that as I kept on running and as they were running, passing by them would only be a matter of time if I kept going. Each participant that I passed symbolizes obstacles and challenges in life that will always come. With patience and persistence, I know that if I focus and not give up then I will definitely be able to overcome these obstacles.
Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.
The apostle Paul exhorts us to run this race with perseverance because we will definitely need it in this Race of Life. 🙂
