Acts 20:24 But none of these things move me. . . I might finish my course with joy. . .
Are you a better starter than finisher? Do you use life’s interruptions as an excuse for being a lousy finisher? What courses have you left unfinished? We start our exercise; we stop after a short period of time. We eat right; then we “cheat.” We start our devotions; then we stop.
Paul spoke to friends and ministry colleagues. (Acts 20:24) His heart was set. He knew what had to be done. He had to finish his course. Nothing deterred him, not even the threat of the loss of life.
Will your activities today help you finish the course God has set for you? Will life’s interruptions hinder you from His course?
