The Kid who will not QUIT

What some athletes lack in ability, they make up for in heart. What some are missing in strength and skill, they compensate for in sheer determination. And sometimes it's the kids who have no chance of winning at all who most inspire their teammates, friends, and people who don't even know them.

Sports Illustrated writer Rick Reilly told of just such a young athlete - a high scholl junior named Ben. He suffers from cerebral palsy, yet he's a member of the Schoo country team and runds every race. The winner usually runds 3.1 mile course in 16 minutes; it takes Ben 51 minutes.

We can relate this to us believers. Some of us seen to run the race of the Christian life with a smooth and easy gait, leading the pack without apparent effort. They are winners, and lets not take anything away from them.

Keep running - leave the result to Jesus
