Tempted to quit? Keep running!

In high school, when I first started learning about Christian Science, I read something that explained to me the need to work faithfully through difficult challenges this way: Suppose you are a long-distance runner preparing for a really important race. You prepare by running many miles every day. But what if, one day, your neighbor sees you running and offers you a ride home? And just that one day you accept the offer. Then it happens the next day, and the next. If you keep accepting rides, would you be ready for the big race? Maybe not. 

Let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.
