100m Final

a Biblical thought...
Don't be obsessed with getting more material things. Be relaxed with what you have. Since God assured us, "I'll never let you down, never walk off and leave you." (Hebrews 13:5)

a Book thought... Holy Discontent by Bill Hybels
I believe the motivating reason why millions of people choose to do good in the world around them is because there is something wrong in that world. (p23)
a Dave thought...
This morning I have just witnessed the 100m final of the 2008 Olympic games. I believe it is the most watched 10 seconds in sport that occurs every four years across the globe. To see Usain Bolt win in 9.68 seconds was absolutely amazing, the fastest 100m in history. Not only did this 6'5'' 21 year-old do it easy but he also decided to do a bit of hotdogging in the last 10 metres. To hear that he has only run one 100m race in the last 12 months is just incredible. The hundreds and hundreds of hours that Usain has trained for this 10 seconds is a reminder to us all that hard work and sacrifice is to be made if you want the best results, even if it is just for a moment.

Just a thought.
