Finishing Strong

Kobe Bryant

Kobe Bryant

Kobe Bryant played the final game of his long and illustrious career for the Los Angeles Lakers last night, and it was a memorable performance. Before the home crowd, Bryant led his team to a come-from-behind victory over the Utah Jazz. The final score was 101-96. Kobe poured in an unbelievable 60 points! This script would be unbelievable even by Hollywood standards, and yet Kobe pulled it off.

This performance capped a year that was less than spectacular for Kobe as an individual and the Lakers as a team. It just goes to show that, even if you go through a rough spot, you can still have a good finish.

Paul the apostle had some trying times in his life, but he was determined to finish strong. Listen to what he says in Colossians 1:29—“To this end I labor, struggling with all his energy, which so powerfully works in me.”

That’s some good encouragement for us to keep on doing our best for the Lord.
