Never Give Up (Middle School)

Devotional

Think about the last race you were part of or that you watched. Maybe it was the mile run in physical education class or a race during the Olympics. How did all of those runners get closer to their goal of finishing that race? They kept moving forward! The same thing is true regarding our faith. When we keep our eyes on Jesus, we are focusing on what God has called us to—the race God has set before us. As we keep moving forward, we’ll develop the resilience to keep going and growing in life, no matter what we face.

Today, take a moment to go for a walk. As you take each step, think about the way you can move forward in your life with your eyes on Jesus and step closer to what God has called you to.
