Running 10K Race this Sunday!!!

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.
1 Corinthians 9:24-25 NKJV

This coming Sunday June 16 @ 5:15am I will be running a 10K race. There will be probably a few thousand runners. It is a huge event in Puerto Princesa City. I have been training very hard and looking forward to see the results of all the hard work.

This run is reminding me of 1 Corinthians 9:24-25 .. we all run in a race .. every person has a life and has a race to run. Something to accomplish. God created every person to do something with their life.

The apostle Paul says we should be running in a way to obtain the price .. now here is my question .. what are you doing in your life to obtain the price? What are you doing with your life to win the price.

How are you living your life? Just wasting the gift God has given you? What are you doing with the gift God has given you? Developing it? Working on making it grow?
For me personally as you maybe know .. I want to support 1000 kids (
www.touchingthenations.com) with their studies .. so they can finish their elementary and high school studies .. and have a future.

What are you doing with your life? When you die and Jesus asks you .. what did you do with your life? What is your answer going to be?

Don't waste your life .. Life is so precious … don't waste a minute working towards what God has called you to do. Run your race in a way to obtain the price. Don't waste your life with being busy with the perishable stuff but instead run your race to obtain the imperishable crown.

Lots of love from the Philippines,
