Thought for the Day: I have a Senior in High School, and though we are not quite there yet, I am concerned about the dreaded senioritis, that affliction that seems to leave many looking past the present moment. The first time I ran a marathon, I hit mile marker 23 and thought to myself, it’s just over 3 miles more. I thought I could pick up my pace. Big mistake! I was wanting to get to the finish line ahead of myself, and the last two miles nearly killed me. In fact, it almost kept me from finishing. When we see the finish line or at least feel that it’s not too far away, there is a tendency to forget where we are and all that has brought us to that moment. Today, I went to the grocery store. I would guess that somewhere between 10-15% of the people were not wearing masks. We are not at the finish line yet, and we must remain vigilant for the sake of all, but especially the most vulnerable. Or as 2nd John suggests, we do not want to lose what we have worked for. We’ve got this! We can do this! And by faith, we shall… assuming we understand that with faith comes responsibility.
Prayer: Keep me vigilant, Gracious God! It is not always easy, especially when I feel as if the destination is close at hand. But in this case, life and death are in our collective hands these final months. Keep me vigilant! Amen!
