Sunday 4.17.11

Many people are coming to the end of Spring Break this week.  What do we love so much about Spring Break?  Well if you are a teacher, a student or a parent of a student you really love having this time off.  Everyone is ready for summer!  Kids are tired of being in school and would rather be outside than a classroom. School is hard but if you persevere you see the fruit of your labor.  Ask any Senior how it feels to graduate from High School.  This verse in 1 Corinthians is great encouragement for anyone that needs the discipline and frame of mind to finish a task.  Start your week off excited to be alive!  Kids,be thankful you have the freedom to attend school and if your a teacher thank God you have a job!   Parents help your children.  They feed off your attitude.  Be positive and help them with their work and encourage them in their accomplishments!

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
