Ok, this is going to bore some of you, but here goes: I enjoy English Premier League Soccer. Two reasons in particular. One: there are NO commercials during game time, NONE! Second: there are no end of season play-offs. In each match teams earn points: 3 if you win, 1 each if a tie, 0 if you lose. The champion is the team that has the most points at the end of the season. That means every match is of equal importance. (I won't talk about relegation, you can look that up on your own.) We're so used to winners and losers that U.S. Soccer had to add play-offs to make their sport palatable to American sports fans. The Apostle Paul writes in Philippians 3:13-14 Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus. If your first thought is to consider "the prize" I wonder if we haven't missed the point: "I press on". To press on is to recognize today as valuable as that prize day. The people I meet, the conversations I have, the opportunities to illuminate Jesus TODAY! Then, guess what? Tomorrow I'll forget today and pour my life into tomorrow's opportunities, the day the Lord has made. Press on!
