1 Corinthians 9:24
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.


Hockey Chat:  You take the time to lace up the skates just right.  You got the good stick with the perfect curve.  You have the essential pads and you’re set to go.  You spring off the bench and over the boards and then just coast around.  Is it too much work to skate hard?  Well then what’s the point of coming to the game if you didn’t come to play to win?  Is someone else suppose to pick up the puck and score the goals?  You need to play to win.


Life Lesson:  The prize of life is eternity with God in Heaven.  That’s a pretty good prize.  Live life in order to win.  Don’t just meander through hoping that someone else will pick up the responsibility to reach your goal.  Go through your days with your eyes on your goal.  Just like every runners step is placed in purpose to get to the goal and every hockey players action is to win for his team, make the moments of you life actions of glorifying God.   You will enjoy your prize at the end even if it takes hard work and hustle in the race.
