Go For Your Prize

There is a scripture that states "Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain" and another scripture that states "Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us". Note it says "the race set before us".

It is also written "But lay up for yourselves (yourselves) treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal, For where your (your) treasure is, there will your (your) heart be also.

One of the things that caused many of the runners of a race to fall behind, and fail. Is rather than running their own race well (their own race), they try to referee and tell others how they should run their race, rather than focusing on there own race.

Do they not know that they will stand before God and give an account for their own race, (words, actions, deeds, judgements and so on) and not the race of others? Maybe this is also why Jesus said:

Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye.

Whatever race God has set before you, that is your race, so run it well. Don't try to run anothers race, or tell that runner how to run his race. Run the race that is set before you, for that is the only race that you will receive a prize for. Your race, and how you ran it.

Blessings, in Christ the giver of the prize.
