They do it to get a crown that will not last; but we do it to get a crown that will last forever. 26 Therefore I do not run like a man running aimlessly; I do not fight like a man beating the air. 27 No, I beat my body and make it my slave so that after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified for the prize. Paul was serious

9  Paul continually examined himself  Paul risked all for others  Paul did not covet what someone had Philippians 4:12-13 (MSG) I’m just as happy with little as with much, with much as with little.
