Finishing well

I am thankful for people who develop the talent God has given them - like engine mechanics. (We just had our RV serviced today.) I am thankful for a wide variety of people with a wide variety of gifts and callings. We are each unique and necessary.

I believe having the character to finish a job is of utmost importance. The engine people were very nice to stay late to finish the job yesterday. But when it came right down to it, they rushed through the finishing touches - and it was costly. We had to spend the night in a rest area with an overheated engine. They had to send a mobile technician and spend more time on it again in the shop.

Finishing well is a character trait.

I am contemplating the verse that tells us to "run the race set before us" and another that tells us to "forget what lies behind and press on to run the race for which God has called us heavenward in Christ Jesus." all as I read a Christian classic "To Live Again" by Catherine Marshall the late widow of the late Dr. Peter Marshall, Chaplain to the United States Senate. Although her husbands death was unexpected, Catherine Marshall was one who finished well, and one from whom, through her writing, I expect to learn much. Janet
