Living Without Goals

1 Corinthians 9:24-27

Some of us are natural planners who know what we want to accomplish and set out to achieve it, whereas others are more flexible and spontaneous.

In today’s passage, we see the Christian life compared to a race.

Otherwise our efforts will be as unproductive as a boxer who throws wild punches and never hits his mark.
