eSeed: Run With Ryun

Read 2 Timothy 2:22 TLB

Jim Ryun, the great miler, was being kidded by a reporter.

“You like to do a lot of different things in training,” he said. “Why don’t you go out for football?”

“Because,” he answered, “I’ll be better off in the long run.”

And so was Joseph.

Potiphar’s wife suggested that he sin with her. But he refused.

One day, when no one else was around, she grabbed him by the sleeve demanding, “Sleep with me.”

But he tore himself away and ran from the house.

That’s how to triumph over temptation.

The Living Bible says, “Run from anything that gives you evil thoughts…but stay close to anything that makes you want to do right.”

Prayer: Father, give us the power to conquer every temptation that will come to us; the strength to do every task that is assigned to us; and the grace to bear every burden which is laid upon us: through Christ. Amen.
