“The Golden Boot”

Key Verse

“Know ye not that they which run in in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain” 1 Corinthians 9:24

Text — 1 Corinthians 9:24-27


The athletes of the world practice for so long so that they can run very fast to win the prize at the end of the tournament. In football, the top goal scorer is often awarded the golden boot. This is a top prize that every footballer strive to win. They put in all resources at their disposal to qualify for the golden boot. However, the golden boot is only for one person in a tournament.

The sports men and women do not get the prize easily, they work hard and pay the prize for it. If you want to excel in your academics and get the best prize you must study hard, burn the midnight oil and determine to get to the top. A lazy boy or girl cannot get the golden boot, only the focused and determined ones get it. Be a diligent and determined child and you will be celebrated soon. “Seest thou a man diligent in his business? he shall stand before kings; he shall not stand before mean men.” (Proverbs 22:29) Meditate on this verse.
