The Human "Race"

Ecclesiasties 9:11-12

*

Two gas company service men, a senior training Supervisor and a young trainee were out checking meters and parked their truck at the end of the alley and worked there way to the other end.

*

At the last house a woman looking out her kitchen window watched the two men as they checked her gas meter.

*

As they finished the meter check the older supervisor challenged his younger co-worker to a foot race down the alley back to the truck.

*

As they came running up to the truck, they realized that the lady from the last house was huffing and puffing right behind them.

*

They stopped and asked her what was wrong.

*

Gasping for breath she said, "When I see two gas men running full speed away from my house, I figured I had better run too."

******************************************************

Last weekend my family and I had the chance to help a church kick off their Sunday School program.

*

On the way back home we stayed overnight at my father-in-laws place before heading north.

*

My brother-in-law and his family stopped by to visit us.

*

*

My brother-in-law as well as his wife and son are really into racing go carts and my their son does very well.

*

He has quite a number of trophies and awards for his efforts.

*

These are special go-carts that are souped up to travel near 80 MPH !!! They are in no way toys !!!

*

Seems they had just returned from quite a day of successful racing and they had video taped much of the race.

*

The camera had a viewing screen and everyone got to re-live the race one more time.

*

As I watched the race I listened to the various comments about what was taking place.

*

Watching that video showed that a race illustrates quite a number of Bible truths.

*

The race took place on a special oval track and the first thing one notices is that no matter how fast the go-carts fly down that track, no matter how many other cars they pass, they always end up right back where they started from.

*

No matter how many times they go around that track, sooner or later they always come back around to the beginning !!!

*

You’ve heard of going from point A to point B !!!

*

*

This is going from point A back to point A and back again to point A, over and over and over !!!

*

Some auto races do go cross country or go from point A to point B.

*

In those races the drivers have a destination in focus and are intent on reaching that final goal !!!

*

Lets compare that to the "Human Race" !!!

*

Is your life on an oval track---are you just going in circles---or are you driving on a long distance race with a home in heaven as your destination !!!

*

Folks today are searching for real meaning in life !!!

*

Daniel 12:4 says...........even to the time of the end: many shall run too and fro...........!!!!

*

Sounds like the "Human Race" of today doesn’t it ???

*

Mankind is racing down the track as fast as they can, trying to get ahead, grabbing for all the gusto they can get !!!

*

We begin this race the minute we are born and it doesn’t end til we breathe our last gasping breath !!!

*

Some run after pleasure, others are chasing education, and still others race after wealth and possessions.
