5 Things I Learned in 2015
2015 has just ended, and we are already facing the “New Year New Me” posts everywhere. It’s easy to poke fun at those getting on the bandwagon, but any change can be a good one. No matter how it was encouraged. To commemorate a new year starting, I’m going to look back at just 5 things I learned from 2015.
Quit While You’re Ahead
I have recently made mention of “quitting while you’re ahead” a few times recently. See, if you know me, you may know that I’m not the most sportsastic person. Over the years, I have played football, soccer, and even paintball, but I was never one to have a baseball or basketball in my hands.
This week has been different for me.
I’ve been in North Carolina since Sunday, and the kids here love playing games. Last night I did two amazing things during these games, but they were both thwarted when I tried to do them again. You can imagine my frustration when I amazed the people around me, but ruined my pedestal when I failed time and time again! It left me wondering, what is the Biblical principle of “quitting while you’re ahead?” At the moment, I had longed to quit early to maintain my clean record, so why did I try again? Was I being greedy or trying to test myself? More importantly, would Jesus want me to quit while I’m ahead in my daily life?
