There is a beautiful story if I haven’t already shared it about teenage boy with down syndrome who was running in a 5K race. There was also a marathon that was starting at the same time. Somehow he got confused and ended up running in the marathon.
His parents were concerned for his safety after never crossing the finish line for the 5K. Hours later he came across the finish line for the marathon and found his parents. When asked why he didn’t stop, his response was, “I knew there would eventually be a finish line, so I just kept running.”
Maybe we could be as brave and bold and not worry about how far we have to run and just keep going until we reach the end.
