No Bear on His Back

[For young adults]

"Let us lay aside every weight,... and let us run with patience the race that is set before us." Hebr. 12:1; These words in Hebrews apply to all of us, but they have a special message for an athlete.

What are some weights a runner must lay aside? Tension, doubt, laziness, belief in physical limitation. They are as heavy to a runner as a bear on his back. These weights that would slow us up or wear us down often seem a natural part of us, impossible to lay aside. But with the help of the teachings of Christ Jesus and of Christian Science they can be laid aside.
