The good old days?

Re: Verse reading–Hebrews 10:19-39 (day six)  “Remember the former days, when, after being enlightened, you endured a great conflict of sufferings. . .therefore, do not throw away your confidence, which has great reward.”  (v 32, 35)  Sometimes we forget.  The good old days weren’t entirely good.  Time tends to soften the memories, but we made sacrifices.  We faced stress.  Building a family or a church or business, there were (and always will be) prices to be paid (time, attention, effort).  One benefit of looking back is to see this truth, and to recognize that giving up now would make all the sacrifices of the past meaningless.  No marathon runner would complete 25 miles (0f a 26.2 mile race) and not finish!  Neither should we.  False logic says, “I have done enough.  I am going to quit.”  Eternal logic says, “I have taken many steps.  I am determined to finish.”  “Through many dangers, toils and snares, I have already come”.  Great reward ahead!  Don’t quit now!
