This week’s meditation
Winning is easy for us.
I did not think I had much interest in the Olympics but when I heard that the Australian women were in the final of the 400 metre freestyle relay I decided to watch their race. It was very exciting and when they won I felt extremely pleased for them and proud of their effort. They had all worked so hard for so long and just to be given the opportunity to participate at the Olympics is a prize in itself. To then cap that off by winning an event, what a feeling that must be. Those who make any Olympic team are in the minority, most athletes simply do not make the cut. For us Christians, it is so much easier to win our ultimate prize - an eternal life with God. All the heavy lifting has been done for us, we all get to win without even breaking a sweat.
This week, let us be grateful that we are on the winning team.
