“Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize”
1 Corinthians 9:24
We are all running the race of our lives! We have set before us a priceless prize (eternity) when we finish. In everything we do, we should always aim to give our best effort, drawing strength from the Holy Spirit so we do not tire. At the end you will reap the reward for your efforts. Through the hardships we face along the way, count it as a small cost. For an eternity spent in the very presence of God is worth the sacrifice!
