Gum on my shoe

In the wonderful film Eddie the Eagle, Bronson Peary the coach of the British Ski Jumper Eddie the Eagle Edwards said: Eddie, listen. You got more dedication, you got more heart and spirit than any of those jumpers out there. Any of them. I mean, I spent six months trying to get rid of you. You’re a gum on my shoe, you never gave up. I mean, are you gonna give up now? At the Olympics? This is your moment. You’re Eddie the Eagle, man. Eddie went on to jump off the 90 metre jump to a British record. The bible talks a lot about the qualities of patience and persistence. In fact they are a fruit of the presence of God. The quality that endeared us to Eddie was God-given. Invite someone to take a closer look at Christ and his church,
