2 Timothy 2:5 (Pt. 5) Thought/Prayer: A Worthy Prize. Topics: 2 at end.
“And if any one takes part in an athletic contest, he gets no prize unless he obeys the rules. (WEY) (Read this scripture and more at http://prayerpivot.com.)
The winning team in a huge, important ballgame will receive a prize. This scripture says they will receive it, if they obey the rules. Otherwise . . . no prize! So at all levels, there are set-ups to maintain rules-decorum, through referees, umpires, judges and more.
Even then, there are infractions of the rules that are missed by those monitoring the rules. With television cameras recording every-which-way and seemingly everything, sometimes viewers at home may see an infraction, but it is missed by those on the court or field. These errors sometimes cost a team a game. But errors are unintentional.
However, if the umpire, for example, is biased, then his or her calls may favor one competing team. This can be witnessed in some games, although both teams are supposed to be represented in the choice of those who monitor everything.
The question is, if the game is not fairly officiated, is the win really a win? No, not really. Should there be a prize? A trophy, if it’s a big game? Probably not. Shouldn’t be. But, still the team who had the biggest score will probably walk away with the trophy, even if the game was unfair.
But is this really a prize? No, not really. It’s a sham prize. A shameful prize. But, this does happen.
In the work of pro-lifers, we must not play a game that is unworthy. Even if the outcomes of our work are helpful to those we serve, if we have cut down other groups or been unfaithful to follow God’s principles of conduct, although the objectives have been met (a win), we will not feel totally like winners. Lord, if we have followed the rules of the Bible, sought Your will, and been considerate and forthright in our service, then we will hopefully claim Your words from a parable of faithfulness as applicable: “Well done, good and faithful servant” (Matthew 25:22). Now that is truly a prize!
Topics: Pray for faithfulness to God’s principles as we go about our pro-life work.
