Run for your life from all this. Pursue a righteous life—a life of wonder, faith, love, steadiness, courtesy. Run hard and fast in the faith. Seize the eternal life, the life you were called to, the life you so fervently embraced in the presence of so many witnesses. (verses 11-12)
I hold that passage in one hand, and this great reminder from Benedictine reading in the other:
Eventually we must all settle down and do something serious with our lives, and every day we must make a fresh beginning of it.May you be able to see the daily opportunities in front of you to run, to seize, to pursue... they are always right there.
