Laying Aside Weights

In the epistle to the Hebrews it is written, "Let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us." How cogent is this appeal in its directness, and emphasized by its associated ideas! And it has lost none of its application in the conditions obtaining today.

In his preparation for a race an athlete may be obliged to undergo a strenuous and sustained course of training. Essentials have always to be kept well in view. For the accomplishment of his task he recognizes that his whole thought and energy must be devoted to it. No sacrifice can be considered too great. Whatever would impede his advancement has to be discarded, and whatever would expedite progress keenly cultivated.
