Join us as we meditate on scripture verses that relate to competition and sport. We invite you to simply read the scripture in a spirit of prayer, considering how this relates to your own life and role as an athlete, parent, coach or administrator. Ask God to help you grow closer to Him through an understanding of his Holy Word and pray that this scripture may inspire you in the days to come. A short prayer follows each verse.
1 Timothy 6:11-12 “But you, child of God, avoid all this. Instead pursue righteousness, devotion, faith, love, patience and gentleness. Compete well for the faith. Lay hold of eternal life, to which you were called when you made the noble confession in the presence of many witnesses.
Prayer: Lord, help me to compete well for the faith, that I may train my heart and mind to love and serve you each and every day. Amen.
