The race; the epic battle of the tortoise and the hare. The timeless fable of an overconfident hare that was sure it could beat the slow moving tortoise.
While the story seems to be about the race; it is a metaphor about life.
Life is like a race; realistically, a marathon. It has a beginning and an end, with a lot of distance in between. So many things can happen along the way; obstacles can pop up, staying focused, pushing yourself when you hit the wall, and pacing yourself to finish.
Rushing to the end and trying to have, and accomplish everything in life is not always the important part of the race. Slow and steady, enjoying the run and scenery along the way, will bring far more pleasures to life.
It is not important how you start the race; but how you run the race and finish it that matters. Enjoy the race of life and all that it offers.
Passion is defined as an emotion, intense, driving, overpowering feeling or conviction; strong affection or love; a strong liking or desire for or dedication to some activity or object of deep interest.
Many have something in their lives that they are very passionate about. It may be work, helping others, teaching, certain hobbies, beliefs, ministry, careers, cooking, working with kids and so many other areas.
Passions are deep and enjoyable desires that draw us deep into them and can be shared with others to learn and enjoy. In some cases a passion turns out to be a calling.
What is your passion? Do you share it with others? Does your passion make a positive impact on lives? Is your passion your calling? Will it bring glory to God? Are you doing what you are passionate about? Does your passion make you happy?
Your passion can change your life and the lives of others.
1 Corinthians 10:31 NIV So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.
