Don’t Stay Down!

Walter Payton

Walter Payton

Several years ago, during a Monday night football game between the Chicago Bears and the New York Giants, one of the announcers observed that Walter Payton, the Bears’ running back, had accumulated over nine miles in career rushing yardage. The other announcer remarked, “Yeah, and that’s with someone knocking him down every 4.6 yards!”

The most successful running backs know that everyone, even the best, gets knocked down. The key to success is to get up and run again just as hard. Good things come to those who persevere.

“Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.”—Galatians 6:9.
