It’s a messy marathon

Let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily trips us up. And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us with our eyes on Jesus…Heb 12:1b

Most of us are not in optimum shape when we start this race and none of us are watching it from the sidelines. We are all stripping off weight while we run. We may leave a path of debris in our wakes. Our trip ups are sometimes very public. It’s not our job to give one another style points but to keep looking at Christ and encouraging one another to do the same.

Lord, help us all to keep our eyes on You.
