FOOD FOR THE SPIRIT--Run, That Ye May Obtain

Yesterday, a return missionary spoke in our ward and shared this little treasure with us and I knew I had to write about it today:

1 Corinthians 9:24

"Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain."

If we could truly comprehend the prize at the end of our race, wouldn't we run a little faster? Wouldn't we try a little harder? Wouldn't we try to be a little more diligent? I think that this scripture applies to many things in life, including weight loss. After reading it, I feel more inspired to not just sort of amble lazily toward my goals, but to run, as if everything depended on it.

Likewise, if we consider our eternal objectives, this scripture is even more powerful. If we only knew what Heavenly Father has in store for His faithful, we would surely pick up the pace. We would forgive a little quicker. We would settle accounts. We would show more compassion. We would confess and forsake. . . we would run, that we might obtain.

Thank you so much for sharing this. Funny how you can read and miss the deaper meaning. I think this is what I needed right now, both for my calling and my weight loss. Thanks again.
