Have you not heard, that those who run in a race run till they reach the finish line? Don't be deceived; in the race of life, everybody is a competitor. There are no fans or supporters; everybody runs for his own place. Even your coach is also on a race; if you don't perform up to expectation, he'd look for another person to coach. People who benefit from you, and people who you directly benefit from are also in the race. They'd continue praising you as long as you continue releasing benefits to them. But when they stop seeing the benefits, many of them will change track.
Life is not fair; so don't run a fair race! Be a smart runner; make sure you make a mark when the baton is passed to you. If you slow down for your friend, you may lose the trend. If your friend is losing his place, make sure you don't. Two losses can't make a win; it will take a winner to mentor a loser. Your friend may not like you if you leave him behind, but he won't like you either if you both lose the race. Losers hardly relate with another loser; they always look for winners who can help them.
That's how far we'd go on today's Timely Note. But take these last words; THE RACE BEGAN THE DAY YOU WERE BORN. BUT IT DOESN'T MATTER HOW FAR YOU'VE RUN; BECAUSE YOU MAY HAVE RAN VERY FAR AND STILL BE THE LAST ON THE TRACK. Have a most fruitful week! In Jesus precious name!
