"Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses... let us run with patience the race that is set before us." Hebrews 12:1
We are here to run our own race, not anyone else's race. And no one is to run our race. Don't spend your time or energy trying to get someone to live the way you think they should. Be busy about your own life.
And who do we follow?
"Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith..." Hebrews 12:2
Our purpose on this earth is to glorify Him. How can we do that if we are running in our neighbor's lane? Our eyes are on them and not the One they should be on.
Just some thoughts that came up after listening to today's sermon.
Until next time...
