Yesterday morning three people woke up, put their tennis shoes on, did their morning stretches, ate a light but nutritious breakfast, and headed out to be a part of the Boston marathon, not suspecting what would be waiting for them at the finish line. It is another sad story. It seems like we are hearing more and more stories like it on a weekly basis.
Just one thought for the day as we pray for the 140 injured and the families of the three whose lives were taken by this horrific event, do we know what is waiting for us? We have been told what is at the end of our race. Let us live the type of life that prepares us for the finish we desire. And let us use our lives as a light to show everyone what is at the end of our race.
Life is too short for us not to reflect Christ in all that we do (Colossians 3:17).
