What have Rocky, the Pocket Rocket and St Paul got in common?



Answer: Discipline.

'Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize.

Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last; but we do it to get a crown that will last for ever.

Therefore I do not run like a man running aimlessly; I do not fight like a man beating the air.

No, I beat my body and make it my slave so that after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified for the prize'.

St Paul to the Corinthians

Hey! thankfully you can be disabled to be able to run the eternity race!!! All that physical training took its toll years ago - I now concentrate on focassing my energies towards a loving God.
