racing with horses

“To whom much is given, much is required.”

As Christians we are called to a higher standard. We have been given so much, but it’s so easy to lose sight of that and get wrapped up in our own trivial circumstances. When I start looking around and comparing myself to others it’s only a matter of time before I find myself exhausted, restless, and frustrated.

I’ll even rationalize my frustration with God. “If I’m supposed to live a life worthy of the calling I’ve received,” I tell Him, ” then why does it feel like it’s killing me?” There is a moment of silence, and God responds:

“If you have raced with men on foot and they have worn you out, how can you compete with horses?” -Jeremiah 12:5
