““Every morning in Africa, a gazelle wakes up. It knows that it must run faster than the fastest lion, or it will be killed. Every morning , a lion wakes up. And it knows it must outrun the slowest gazelle, or it will starve to death. Now, it doesn’t matter if you are a lion or a gazelle … when the sun comes up, baby, you’d better be running.””
My first reaction was “I cannot run. I can barely walk. Crawl has challenges….”
I kept coming back to it, however, and decided that if nothing else I could use the time for some serious reading and “reflection”.
For the disciple even down time has potential. I caught up on several books that were started and not finished.
