There are paradoxes in life which can’t be explained easily, if ever. I have two quotes from the movie, Chariots of Fire, which focus on two runners on the British Olympic Team of 1924. Eric is a Scottish Christian preparing for the missionary field and Harold is an English Jew who is befriended by Eric. Eric runs for the glory of God while Harold runs to overcome prejudice. As you read the quotes, you can imagine the depth of each individual’s inner voice. Together, their statements constitute the paradox: one of knowing and one of confusion. Can you relate to either one? Maybe both?” I believe God made me for a purpose, but He also made me fast. And when I run I feel His pleasure. ” Eric Liddell
” I’m forever in pursuit and I don’t even know what I’m chasing. ” Harold Abrahams
Great post but I think this picture fits the quote much better.
I think you may be on to something!
