Life Is a Marathon (i365 Day 206)

How do you view life? Life is indeed short, and that’s why some people call it a sprint. But, on the other hand, some individuals see life as a marathon. People see life as a marathon because it involves endurance. Life is full of all kinds of hurdles and we need endurance to overcome these things. Also, if anyone wants to master anything in life, one needs to have endurance.
Similarly, the Christian life is a marathon and believers need perseverance to finish the race. Let’s ponder the words of Peter again.
Ponder: 5For this very reason, make every effort to supplement your faith with goodness, goodness with knowledge, 6knowledge with self-control, self-control with endurance, endurance with godliness, (2 Peter 1:5–6 HCSB)
Post: Let’s post a question to God. “Lord, could You give me endurance to finish my life’s marathon?”
Practice: Let’s practice what you learnt. Pray for endurance daily.
Proclaim: Let’s proclaim to others about your experiential knowledge. Share with a friend the lesson you learnt in endurance.
