Spanish Runner Does The Right Thing in Coaching Ministry Posted July 3, 2013 · Report reply was that the right thing to do? I'm not so sure. My pastor has asked me this question, "If Jesus was a linebacker, would he lay you out when you came through the line, or would he softly tackle you or let you run by?"I personally believe he would lay you out, then help you up. He wouldn't celebrate or degrade you, he might point to the Lord and say a thankful prayer. If Jesus was running that race, I think he would have passed the guy that slowed down. But, that's just my opinion. Have a blessed 4th of July and "Be strong and courageous. Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is the LORD your God who goes with you. He will not leave you or forsake you."
