    b) When do you feel like quitting before you finish?

     

    c) If you were running a race and you were in the lead, would you quit 10 yards from the finish line? Why?

     

    d) If you were running a race and you were in last place, would you quit before you crossed the finish line? Why?

     

    e) Have you ever been on a team that was losing really badly?  Did you give up and quit before the end of the game?  Why or why not?

     

    f) What does it mean to finish strong?

     

    g) How can you finish strong in school or when you are working on something?

    i) In the Bible in Galatians 6:9 it says, "Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up."  What are we supposed to not quit doing?  What is the promise?
