This morning, both Isaiah and Josh had the delight of finishing off a box of cereal.
"Mom," Isaiah says, "I'm the finisher! And Joshua's the finisher too."
"And Mom..." he asks between bites, "does that mean that we are like Christ?"
A deep question for before breakfast! But being the brilliant mom that I am, I mentally reviewed every Scripture verse I knew about finishers and landed on the verse he was thinking of. So we talked about it together.
"Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God." Heb 12:1-2
