Dig deep. Go the extra mile. Give it your best shot.
Those are words from highly accomplished people.
Paul and I attended a funeral of a wonderful and beloved runner, triathlete, philanthropist and doctor. He was also known to always say "Dig deep." When he was asked by his fellow runners how long the run was going to be, he would answer "One to two miles." After the seventh mile, he will tell the runners to just dig deep, and they will find that extra store of energy that will get them to finish the race.
It brings to my mind Jesus. I often wonder how he could have withstood all the beatings, the carrying of the cross, and the crucifixion.
Dig Deep. Go the Extra Mile. Give it the best shot.
For Jesus, it was not a choice. It was to save humanity.
