RESISTING LAURELS

“Brethren, I do not regard myself as having laid hold of it yet; but one thing I do; forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead…” (Philippians 3:13).

By observation, it seems many reach a stage in life where they rest on their laurels; reflecting on past accomplishments. Paul’s encouragement is to keep going, don’t quit, stay plugged-in; laurels are something to be resisted. If we are not careful, all the things we used to do can become an excuse for doing nothing today.
