Devotionals for Daily Living
You were running a good race. Who cut in on you to keep you from obeying the truth?
(Galatians 5:7 (NIV))
We all face distractions in our lives. The key is to not allow the distractions to make us change course!
Think about that in relationship to your walk with Jesus. Paul often referred to this as a race where the winner gets the prize.
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.
(1 Corinthians 9:24 (NIV))
The only difference is that we are all in our own race and if we win, we get the prize. That prize is eternal life with the Lord in heaven. If we are running for such a valuable prize, why do we get distracted by things that have no eternal value? Why do we get off course chasing after things that don’t matter? We must keep our eyes upon Jesus. We must stay focused on the prize!
Have you gotten off course?
