Today we'll read one of my favorite scripture passages related to competition. Every time I hear it, I want to play racquetball and wear somebody out.
Paul writes to the Corinthian church in his first letter at chapter 9 and verse 24 saying, "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." I like that!
Let's do three things he describes here:
1) Compete - determine to overcome your opponents. Don’t give an inch to defeated attitudes.
2) Strive - drain every drop of potential from your abilities. Go after your personal and team goals with all your heart.
3) Focus – Clear your mind of all distractions and train your mind on the ultimate goal... a championship.
In today's competition; compete, strive and focus. Run in such a way as to get the prize.
