thought the greatest fun
was moving fast just like the wind:
he simply loved to run.He loved to sprint so very much
that he began to dream
of one day running on Great Britain’s
fine Olympic team.
Just when Eric Liddell’s dream was coming true, he stunned the world by refusing to run his Olympic race on a Sunday, a day he believed was for honoring God. Many people thought Eric was a traitor and a fool, for they were sure he would have won. But Eric believed God’s promise “He who honors me, I will honor” – and God kept His promise. From winning Olympic gold to leaving his fame behind to go to China as a missionary, Eric put God in first place. (1902-1945)
