Daily Christian Quote

"Just remember, man gives the award. But God gives the reward."

Advice from Denzel Washington's mother

Denzil has a very smart mother. And amen to her quote. Keep your eyes on the prize before you.

1 Corinthians 9:23-25
Now this I do for the gospel’s sake, that I may be partaker of it with you. Do you not know that those who run in a race all run, but one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may obtain it. I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. Therefore let us, as many as are mature, have this mind; and if in anything you think otherwise, God will reveal even this to you.
Philippians 3:14
I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
Matthew 5:12
Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you.

Are you keeping your eyes on the prize before you, [Jesus]?
