Don’t you realize that in a race everyone runs, but only one person gets the prize? So run to win! All athletes are disciplined in their training. They do it to win a prize that will fade away, but we do it for an eternal prize. So I run with purpose in every step. I am not just shadowboxing. I discipline my body like an athlete, training it to do what it should. Otherwise, I fear that after preaching to others I myself might be disqualified.
1 Corinthians 9:24-27
Spiritual discipline is one of the most important things to learn in life and it leads to an eternal prize. Every day counts, so run with purpose in every step!
What unnecessary things (sins, habits, attitudes, etc.) can you eliminate from your life that keep you from running with purpose?
What spiritual things (bible, prayer, relationships, etc.) can you add to your life to increase your spiritual discipline?
