Keep Your Eyes Fixed

Hebrews 12:1-2 says, "Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, Looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God."

There is a lot going on in the world that can pull you away from your duty: entertainment, money, cares of this world, oppression, fear, etc.  It seems so easy to get sidetracked. However, there is an answer to this problem. Keep your eyes fixed on your end, and you will obtain it!

Florence Chadwick was a swimmer from the 1950's who understood this principle.  Read the analogy below!
