‘Those who honour me I will honour’

1 Samuel 2:30

Eric Liddell was one of the Olympic athletes depicted in the popular film ‘Chariots of Fire’. He won the 400 metres gold medal in the 1924 Olympics and was also a Scottish rugby international. He only ran the 400m race because he’d withdrawn from the 100m, his strongest distance, due to the qualifying heats being run on a Sunday. Before the final, he was handed a piece of paper by the US Team Coach, on which was written this promise of the Lord to Samuel. True for Samuel and true for Eric Liddell, it can be true for us today. This fine, committed Christian turned his back on further sporting fame to become a missionary in China.

Daily reading: Micah 4

Bible in one year : 2 Chronicles 23-24; Luke 9:18-36
