Chasing a Lion

20 There was also Benaiah son of Jehoiada, a valiant warrior from Kabzeel. He did many heroic deeds, which included killing two champions of Moab. Another time, on a snowy day, he chased a lion down into a pit and killed it.21 Once, armed only with a club, he killed a great Egyptian warrior who was armed with a spear. Benaiah wrenched the spear from the Egyptian’s hand and killed him with it.22 Deeds like these made Benaiah as famous as the Three mightiest warriors.23 He was more honored than the other members of the Thirty, though he was not one of the Three. And David made him captain of his bodyguard.
2 Samuel 23:20-23

Who’s up for some lion chasing?

Dare to dream. Expect the impossible. Focus your energy on creating instead of criticizing. Be the change. Don’t do it because it’s easy. Choose to do it because it’s hard.  God didn’t call us to a life of comfort and ease. He called us to a life of obedience and reckless abandon, relentlessly pursuing Him.

Be a lion chaser!

One Response to Chasing a Lion

  1. evanlaar1922 says:

    National Geographic did a show watching a live program where a lion and tiger fell into a pit together. The group wanted to see who was stronger and let the battle continue. They circled each other and then, with lightning speed, the lion’s paw swung and crushed the skull of the tiger with one blow. Hmmmm…ready to be a lion? Hope so…
