Are you overweight ?. ( Hebrews 12 v 1 - 2 )

      I was watching the ,'World Athletic  Championships', and
      Mo Farah   was running, and of course he won the gold  .
      The thing that struck me about  him was, he is very thin,
      and yet he is world champion. The fact is  none of the other
      competitors carried  much  weight, fat people don't win
      races. It is the writer to the Hebrews who likens the Christian
      life, as a race, a spiritual race. He writes to all the competitors
      and says,'' Let us lay  aside every weight'', The question we all
      have to ask ourselves, what  is holding us back?, or who is
      holding us back?.

                                      A  prayer.
      Dear Lord and Saviour, grant us grace to rid ourselves of those
      things that are weights, that we know is holding us back, be it         
      so called friends, habits, past experiences, Amen.
