You know as well as I do, it’s one thing to start something. It’s something else entirely to complete it. Relax! “Don’t start what you can’t finish” is not my point!

To be honest, I don’t believe you should finish everything you start. Your children with homework just perked up. There are certain quests better left undone, some projects wisely abandoned. Though I wouldn’t list homework as one of them! We can become so obsessed with completion that we become blind to effectiveness. No, my desire is not to convince you to finish everything. My desire is to encourage you to finish the right thing.

Certain races are optional. Other races are essential—like the race of faith, your marriage or your family. Consider from Hebrews in chapter 12:1, “Let us run the race that is before us and never give up!”

Be Strong. Finish Strong. Act Like Men.
