Quotes- Ultimate Prize

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

Reading this it would appear the most important nugget of wisdom is to run in a way to get the prize, ie. try your hardest. I used to think that as well, but then you look again. The defining part of this message is knowing what the prize is, and that is important. In fact, I was talking with someone yesterday about the pros/cons of moving away from your family for more money. It all depends on what your prize is (money or being with your family?).

So for one person the prize is to do the very best they can at their job sacrificing all else. Another may value quality time with family above all else; someone else is in between. You have to know what the prize is because otherwise you aren't even running in the right race.
