Just got to reblog something from Chief of the Least (also known as Bryan Daniels). I’ve copied this photo of his young sons above – he writes a lot about them. He is funny, and his writing is entertaining: also, he has a heart for the things of God. While this post is about how it’s worth it in spite of physical pain (a herniated disc) in this more recent one he writes about how we need to be in training. Finally, he also writes wonderfully about child-wrestling here. We need to run to obtain the prize, as it says in 1 Cor 9:24:
You’ve all been to the stadium and seen the athletes race. Everyone runs; one wins. Run to win. All good athletes train hard. They do it for a gold medal that tarnishes and fades. You’re after one that’s gold eternally.
