Did you happen to see this in the news yesterday? It seems a six year-old boy missed his school bus in Virginia and was so intent on getting to school on time, that he drove his parents' car.

According to reports, he made at least two 90-degree turns, passed several cars, and ran off the rural two-lane road several times before hitting an embankment and utility pole about a mile and a half from school.

"He was very intent on getting to school," said Northumberland County Sheriff Chuck Wilkens. "When he got out of the car, he started walking to school. He did not want to miss breakfast and PE."

Obviously there are some bad parts of this story...but don't you love his determination and persistence?

Go here to read the whole story.

I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.

Interesting story. I know your point is the determination and persistence he showed, but it makes me wonder what is going on behind the story. With the goal (Christ-like living toward God glorified) in our sites, we should press on with such wreckless abandon. Thanks for the encouragement!

Thank you Tanya for checking in. You are right, we should learn from this kid and go after God with that same abandon!

Take care!
