“Now every athlete who goes into training conducts themself temperately and restricts themself in all things. They do it to win a prize that will soon tarnish, but we do it to receive a crown of eternal blessedness that cannot tarnish. 1 Corinthians 9:25
Are you ready for some football! I am, and it makes me think about the athletes preparing to take the field and what they play for, a trophy.
In our christian walk we should train ourselves in all that we do to be the best we can. We should DO all things as if we are DOING it for God. He promises us that if we do we will receive an eternal crown of blessedness, not just in the here after, but today!
