Life is a such…

Life is a such a competition especially here in the U.S. Everybody is trying to out do each other, trying to “keep up with the Jones’ and them”, or be the Jones; but the thing is what in life are we competing for? what is the prize , the end result? To able to say that you did better than somebody else. And what defines better? I know one thing, whatever we (people) are trying to compete for is not what God wants us to compete for. We are supposed to be competing for the Kingdom of Heaven, our ultimate treasure.

(1 Corinthians 9:24-25) 24 Do you not know that those who run in a race all run, but one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may obtain it. 25 And everyone who competes for the prize is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a perishable crown, but we for an imperishable crown.

(Mark 8:36) 36 For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul?
