Winning in the End

Almost

Colossians 3:23-24
New Living Translation (NLT)

23 Work willingly at whatever you do, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people. 24 Remember that the Lord will give you an inheritance as your reward, and that the Master you are serving is Christ.


Almost Number One

Almost a winner
Is no winner at all
Even if you get a medal
You cannot stand tall

And nowadays they give medals
If you just show up and run
How can you be proud
When there’s nothing you’ve done

You can show off your ribbons
With their colors galore
But they really mean nothing
They’re just a dime at the store

For your awards to be of value
You must work hard everyday
And then when they praise you
You won’t have to look away

And what of the ones, you ask
Who never can win
Won’t their spirits be broken
Can they take it on the chin

Of this I am certain
And it’s always been true
Work everything as unto the Lord
And He will take care of you

Father,

In this race we run help us to do our best. Help us to work as for You. Then we can rest in the knowledge that You empower us to complete the task as You would have us do it. From You and You alone we seek applause and approval.
