When Sun Comes Up You Better be Running

Like to share a fav quote in 1 LinkedIn group.

“Every morning in Africa, a gazelle wakes up, 
it knows it must outrun the fastest lion or it 
will be killed. 

Every morning in Africa, a lion wakes up.
It knows it must run faster than the 
slowest gazelle or it will starve. 

It doesn't matter whether you're the lion or a gazelle-
when the sun comes up, you'd better be running.” 

― Christopher McDougall, 

Born to Run: A Hidden Tribe, Superathletes, 
and the Greatest Race the World Has Never Seen

Another story i read on a blog:

A king who did not believe in the goodness of God, had a slave who, in all circumstances, said: “My king, do not be discouraged, because everything God does is perfect, no mistakes!”
One day they went hunting and along the way a wild animal attacked the king. His slave managed to kill the animal, but could not prevent his majesty losing a finger.
Furious and without showing his gratitude for being saved, the nobleman said: “Is God good? If He was good, I would not have been attacked and lost my finger.
The slave replied: “My king, despite all these things, I can only tell you that God is good, and He knows “why” of all these things. What God does is perfect. He is never wrong!
Outraged by the response, the king ordered the arrest of his slave. Later, he left for another hunt and was captured by savages who made human sacrifices. In the altar, ready to sacrifice the nobleman, the savages found that the victim had not one of his fingers, so he was released. According to them, it was not so complete to be offered to the gods.
Upon his return to the palace, he authorized the release of his slave, and received him very affectionately. “My dear, God was really good to me! I was almost killed by the wild men, but for lack of a single finger, I was let go! But I have a question: If God is so good, why did he allow me to put you in jail?
My King, if I had gone with you in this hunt, I would have been sacrificed for you, because I have no missing finger, therefore, remember everything God does is perfect. He is never wrong.
Often we complain about life, and negative things that happen to us, forgetting that nothing is random and that everything has a purpose.
Every morning, offer your day to God, don’t be in a rush.
Ask God to inspire your thoughts, guide your actions, and ease your feelings. And do not be afraid. God is never wrong!
You know why this message is for you? I do not know, but God knows, because he never makes mistakes…….
The path of God and his word is perfect, without impurities. He is the way of all those who trust in Him, as He says in 2 Samuel 22:31.
What you do with this message is up to you. May God put in your heart the desire to send it to someone. God knows why He choose you to receive this message. Please bless someone with it.
God is never wrong!
