  • We’re in the race of a lifetime

    A man entered the New York Marathon and found that he was immediately the last runner. The guy ahead of him started making fun by saying things like, “How does it feel to be last?” Well, that was the straw that broke the camel’s back, and the last runner said, “Do you really want to know?” And he dropped out of the race.

    Where are you in the race of life? The Bible describes life among other things to be a race. Life is more of a marathon than a 100-yard dash. We all find ourselves at different points along the race.

  • Ruth Graham led simple, yet inspiring life

    While my wife and I were traveling in North Carolina last week, we visited the Billy Graham Library in Charlotte.

    Walking through the Prayer Garden, we were impressed at the simplicity of the grave of his wife, Ruth Bell Graham, who died in 2007.  

    An ordinary field stone, like many of its kind in that area, marks her grave. Inscribed at the top is the Chinese figure for righteousness, appropriate because she was born and reared in China, the daughter of missionaries there, and always retained her love for the Chinese people.

  • Our deeds, words can influence others

    Pam Tebow, mother of University of Florida Gator quarterback Tim Tebow, told the story of her son buying Cocoa Krispies.

    She recently spoke to a packed crowd at a local church about being a person of influence.

    She said her son “Timmy” normally doesn’t eat sweets, but this one time they were at the store together and he put a box of Cocoa Krispies in the shopping cart.

    A little boy, a Tebow fan, saw the box of cereal and told his mom, “Tim Tebow eats Cocoa Krispies!” and he wanted some, too.

  • Protection in troubled times

    “I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in Him will I trust.” Psalm 91:2

    Those who live in the shelter of the most high will find rest in the shadow of the almighty. For he will rescue you from every trap and protect you from the fatal plague. His faithful promises are your armor and protection.

  • A quality needed by all

    Endurance is a great quality of life that we need. An athlete endures the physical hardships of a sports contest in order to win the victory.  We must be willing to endure in our individual lives.

    Life could be compared to a marathon race. It can only be won by endurance and dependability. As you run the race of life, remember that he who endures to the end will be the real winner.
