Sprint to the Finish

Matt’s daughter is a gifted track athlete, excelling in the 100 meter dash. She also is successful in longer distance races, such as the cross country event.

Matt was surprised when her coach recommended she give up competing in the longer races. Due to physiological reasons, the coach believed that in order for her to develop her true strength, the 100 meter dash, she needed to avoid the races that might hinder her strength.

Hebrews 12:1 says, “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.”

Today, avoid activities that might hinder or distract you from using your strengths. Delegate them instead to those who are gifted in the areas you are not.
