What Have I Accomplished? – 1 Corinthians 9:25

Welcome to Scriptures for Life with TorahFamily.org. Taking time to focus on the Father’s way.

1 Corinthians 9:25
Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last; but we do it to get a crown that will last forever.

The verse says those who compete in games place themselves in strict training. I’m sure we’ve all seen these individuals before. You know, like in the olympics. These people are at the top of their game.

They simply do amazing things. I remember watching them years ago and thinking “How do they do that?” The strength. The agility. The balance. Doing a flip on a thin piece of wood four feet off the ground and landing back on that piece of wood. I mean, really? How in the world?

And they do it all for a crown that will not last. Think about that for second. Everything they do is amazing in the physical. I agree. Yet, all their efforts gain them only something that will fade. Something that can be stolen.

Are your efforts in life only gaining you “things” in this life? At the end of each day, do you ask yourself “What have I accomplished?”

Let this be a focus in your time of meditation throughout the day. Until next time, Shalom.

Here's something interesting to consider:
