Thought for the day : Run to get the Prize—a crown that will last forever. Warning:Do not set your heart on evil.
1 Cor. 9: 24 ~ 27 ; 10:1~10
24 You know that in a race all the runners run but only one wins the prize, don’t you? You must run in such a way that you may be victorious.
25 Everyone who enters an athletic contest practices self-control in everything. They do it to win a wreath that withers away, but we run to win a prize that[j] never fades.
26 That is the way I run, with a clear goal in mind. That is the way I fight, not like someone shadow boxing.
27 No, I keep on disciplining my body, making it serve me so that after I have preached to others, I myself will not somehow be disqualified.
1 Now I do not want you to be ignorant, brothers, of the fact that all of our ancestors who left Egypt[a] were under the cloud. They all went through the sea,
2 and they all were immersed into Moses in the cloud and in the sea.
3 They all ate the same spiritual food
4 and drank the same spiritual drink, for they drank from the spiritual rock that went with them. That rock was the Messiah.[b]
5 But God wasn’t pleased with most of those people,[c] and so they were struck down in the wilderness.
6 Now their experiences serve as examples for us so that we won’t set our hearts on evil as they did.
7 Let’s stop being idolaters, as some of them were. As it is written, “The people sat down to eat and drink and got up to play.”[d]
8 Let’s stop sinning sexually, as some of them were doing, and on a single day 23,000 fell dead.
9 Let’s stop putting the Lord[e] to the test, as some of them were doing, and were destroyed by snakes.
10 You must stop complaining, as some of them were doing, and were annihilated by the destroyer.
