I Corinthians 9:24 - 27 Do you not know that those who run in a race all run, but only one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may win. Everyone who competes in the games exercises self-control in all things. They then do it to receive a perishable wreath, but we an imperishable. Therefore I run in such a way, as not without aim; I box in such a way, as not beating the air; but I discipline my body and make it my slave, so that, after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified.
I have been thinking about these verses and am very convicted. I ask myself the following questions. Do I exercise self control in all things? Do I have aim? What is my aim? Is my body my slave or am I a slave to my body?
