We must run so as to win our race.

Friday, 9/12/14

St. Paul said, “I have become all things to all men,” and I take objection to that. It was right enough for Paul, but not for me, and probably not for you. Neither of us is the be-all and the end-all of creation. There are millions of others who can run faster then us, sing better than us, charm better than us, think more clearly than us. So, it isn’t practical for us to apply to ourselves what Paul said about becoming all things to all. 

However, we must apply to ourselves what Paul went on to say. Each of us, running in our own class must give our all to being the best in our class. Our doting heavenly Father is delighted with us when we run our very best, sing as well as we can, are as charming as we can be, think as clearly as the interior fog will let us think.

We are always in training, so we must watch what we eat. We must get up off our couches. We must visit the library. We must call some lonely child of God who is longing to hear a friendly voice.
