“They were both running, but the other disciple outran Peter and reached the tomb first.”
The economy is heating up. Last quarter’s GDP growth and what is predicted for the rest of the year might well be something none of us have seen before. Granted, we are overlapping 2020, but we are still possibly in for a year where everything is going to need to run faster, better and bigger. I know there is still a lot of trepidation and wait and see and that is reasonable, but if we aren’t readying ourselves to run faster when asked, then we stand the chance of being caught flat-footed.
The Bible has a really cool account of one Disciple who could outrun another and was ready to do so at the perfect time. Both were able to go into the empty tomb, but one got there first. It’s a great reminder that when we have the chance to run to Jesus, let’s take it. And, let’s keep ourselves ready to do so at any time.
Big thanks to James (a loyal reader and encourager) for doing his back of the envelope math from Friday’s post about the growth of Christianity over time. Check this out: “Growth in Christianity: 198,500,000x. Growth in humanity: 19-38x”. Again, from a few to so many!
