I can draw a picture of this from the NFL. Just a few weeks ago, Philadelphia was playing New York. New York came out on fire and jumped to a big lead. I’m sure the Giants were feeling confident that they would win. But then there was an amazing comeback, and the Eagles ties the score. New York got the ball and couldn’t move it. They were forced to punt with just seconds left in the Game. The Eagles player fielded the ball and ran it all the way back.
Now here’s the part that illustrates our principle. When he got to about the five yard line, and it was evident that he was going to score, he didn’t just run into the endzone. No! He held up the ball and ran parallel to the goal line to prolong the agony and rub the faces of the NY giants in it.
