2 Timothy 4:7

I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.

Insight: The longer we live, the more clarity we often find.  Here we find Paul at the end of his life.  He certainly didn't have everything figured out and was flawed just like the rest of us.  But he was able to say with confidence that he had accomplished the most important things with his life.  He finished strong.

Prayer: God, help me to live with the end goal in mind.  It's easy to get caught up in a busy schedule and my own personal goals.  Jesus, today I pause and remind myself that the most important thing is knowing and following you.
