“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. 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. Therefore I do not run like someone running aimlessly; I do not fight like a boxer beating the air. No, I strike a blow to my body and make it my slave so that after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified for the prize.” 1 Corinthians 9:24-27 NIV
Have you ever heard someone say I’m working at a dead end job? There’s nothing worst than a dead end job. When someone talks about a dead end job what they are essentially saying is that they’ve hit a ceiling in their employment where there’s no room for growth in their position. You can have the top position in a dead end job. There’s nothing worst than a dead end job. Paul says I do not run like someone running aimlessly. Watch the video above as I attempt to encourage you and me to run after the purpose we were intended for.
