Sometimes Hollywood gets it right. Sometimes. In a quiet scene from “Chariots of Fire”, Scottish missionary Eric Liddell, to assuage his sister’s protests, explained why he would race in the Olympics before returning to his China ministry…
“Jenny, Jenny, you’ve got to understand, I believe that God made me for a purpose—for China. But He also made me fast, and when I run, I feel His pleasure. To give it up would be to hold Him in contempt. You’re right—it’s not just fun, Jenny. To win is to honor Him.”
What do you love to do for others and do well? God put it there. Do it for Him; do it to win.
