9 Ways the Life of Faith is Like Running

Written by Quinn G. Caldwell

I've recently become something of a runner, and the more I've done it, the more convinced I've become that the running metaphors one finds all over the New Testament work quite well.


1
Most of the time, it feels like work...

But every once in a while, it feels like flying.


2
You can do it alone...

But you'll do it faster and better with other people.


3
If your knees aren’t at least a little bit sore at least a little bit of the time...

You're not doing it hard enough.


4
Somebody will try to tell you that certain clothes are required to do it well.

They're wrong.


5
When people who don't do it see you doing it...

They wonder why the hell you would bother.


6
But they're also just a little bit impressed...

Especially if you look like it's not coming easy to you.


7
It's hard to start...

And easy to quit.


8
The longer you do it ...

The harder it is to quit.


8
If the only time you ever do it is when you’re being chased...

You're totally going to get caught.
